NIAGARA FALLS —
She frequently confided that living with her granddaughter was one of the best decisions she ever made and gave her life a renewed sense of fulfillment. All her grandchildren were a great source of pride for her and she frequently bragged about their accomplishments to everyone she met. She was a devoted grandmother who always was there to assist with rides, meals, money and love for her grandchildren, no matter what age or location. Regardless of the task, she always smiled and said it makes me feel needed. Her love also extended to animals, including her cats, Luis and Honeybun, and all the birds, squirrels and rabbits that congregated near her side door to eat the peanuts she tossed to them everyday. This year she traveled to two monumental events: the graduation of her grandson, Thad, from Ithaca College; and the wedding of her granddaughter, Michelle, in Erie, PA. Her heartfelt compassion was never exclusive to her family and friends but was extended to numerous charities and organizations through monetary contributions despite her limited income. She was especially partial to the Native American Children of the Southwest.
She is survived by her sons, Michael Komo of Erie, PA, and Thad (Vickie) Komorowski of Niagara Falls, NY; her grandchildren, Michelle (Matt) Bluman of Walkersville, MD, Michael R. Komo of Washington, DC, Thaddeus Komorowski III and Genna Komorowski, both of Niagara Falls, NY and Valerie Komo of Erie. Her dear sister, Rose Kelley of Roseville, MN; and numerous nephews and nieces. Besides her parents; and husband, she was predeceased this year by her sister, Jean Zarr of Albuquerque, NM, formerly of Niagara Falls; and several years ago by Helene Litsios of New York City.
