Gail Bugnacki Obituary

Gail (Kozlowski) Bugnacki was born on February 23rd, 1954 and passed away peacefully at her home in Middletown, CT on January 26th, 2024.

Never one to do things easily, Gail fought her declining health until the very end, showcasing both her truly peerless stubbornness and resilience. Gail was beloved for her good advice (do as I say, not as I do, a favorite maxim of hers), her strong and instantly offered opinions, her love of symmetry, soft fabrics, and the giving of extravagant gifts. She would rearrange an entire room in someone else’s house without asking if it was okay. She would also drop everything for a friend in need, no matter what time it was, where they were, or if they’d spoken in the past twenty years or not.

She was a contradiction of a woman, a whirlwind and a home base, a gossip monger and a keeper of secrets. She was as much a fighter as she was a lover, loving people, while also loving her privacy. She had a gift for forgiving without needing an apology, and a similar but less appreciated gift for avoiding apologies herself. She never held a concrete opinion for more than twenty minutes straight, but, when asked, somehow managed to have always thought so. 

There will be no one else like her. It is impossible to convey how much she will be missed.

She is survived by her daughter, Emma Veseskis, son in law, Jeff Korp, nephew, John Rzasa, niece, Kate Rzasa, cousin and roommate, Deborah Bozzi, her brother Robert Kozlowski, his wife Roseann, and many loving cousins. She is predeceased by her parents John and Irene Kozlowski (Sluboski), her sister, Carol Rzasa, and brother John (Jack) Kozlowski.

As per Gail’s wishes, there will be no formal service. In lieu of flowers, the family would like to suggest donations to the American Lupus foundation or the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen located in Middletown, CT in her honor.
