Regina B. Draganowski, a Mountain View resident, died at home Oct. 30. She was 78.
Born in Poznan, Poland, on July 9, 1934 the ravages of Worold War II led her to escape to London where she met the love of her life, Chester Draganowski. They settled in Mountain View in 1956 and had two children.
She loved her parish, St. Brother Albert Polish Mission, her family said, and she and her husband were instrumental in raising funds for its development. A past president of the Polish board, she also volunteered to feed the homeless. She enjoyed baking, her roses, church activities and friends, her family said.
She is survived by her daughter, Monica, and son Andrew.
A funeral mass was held Tuesday, Nov. 6, at St. Brother Albert Polish Mission in San Jose, with interment at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Los Altos. An online guest book is available at cusimanocolonial.com.
