In memory of
Nanette Fay Hart
July 31, 1928, Nanette Fay Hart, our amazing mother and wife began her journey in Brighton, England, where she was raised by her brothers and sister, served in WWII as a teletype operator, and dreamed of living the American Dream. And she did just that, crossing over peacefully and graciously on Sept. 19, 2018. After meeting her soon-to-be husband, a Polish sailor, in London, then reuniting in New York, Nanette married Jan Olszewski in 1950 and began raising their family in Hartford. By 1957, they were homeowners in Windsor Locks, and energetically embracing the community. Nanette volunteered as both Girl Scout leader and Cub Scout den mother. As secretary of the WL Women's Auxiliary Group, she enthusiastically cheered on the 1965 Little League World Series Champions. In later years, Nanette also worked at the voting polls, and a reading mentor at South Street School. While her No. 1 job was raising a family, she also worked as a bookkeeper and was working with TSA at Bradley International Airport well into her 80s. She excelled at it all, all ways. For relaxation, Nanette especially enjoyed shopping and lunching with Beth, Jeopardy, Scrabble, crosswords, water aerobics, reading, and traveling. She loved cruises, from the Caribbean to Alaska, from the Panama Canal to Bermuda. West Coast kids gave her the joys of countless visits to Southern California, and the Pacific Northwest. More locally, annual vacations to Westport brought biking, beaching, and good times. Nanette's joy, banter, and unmatchable wit will be missed by all who have had the pleasure to cross her path; most of all, husband, Jan; and children, Paul (Helen) Olszewski, Beth (Jim) Lurate, and Anne Quade; her sister, June (Nick); grands, Matthew, Ian, Victoria, Christopher, and Shane; and five great-grands. Having lived 90 blessed years, Nanette will be welcomed to eternity by a good many friends and family who have passed on before her. We thank God for the beautiful life he has graced Nanette with. We also thank the Suffield House and Masonicare teams for their gentle caring and support. Family will receive guests for visitation hours on Sunday, Sept. 23, from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Windsor Locks Funeral Home, 441 Spring St., Windsor Locks. On Monday, Sept. 24, you are also invited to meet at the funeral home for a procession at 10 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. at St. Robert Bellarmine Church, 52 S. Elm St., Windsor Locks. Burial will follow at St. Mary Cemetery, Windsor Locks. To leave online condolences visit www.windsorlocksfuneralhome.com
