On Friday, December 8, 2018, Urania (Byman) Druzbicki passed away at her home at the age of 84.
She was born on September 3, 1934 in Southbridge to Arthur and Lena Byman. Loved by all who knew her, Urania was a wonderful woman who will always be cherished and dearly missed. She was known as “G.G.” by her great-grandchildren because she felt she was too young to be a grandmother, never mind a great-grandmother.
Urania was preceded in death by her first husband, Earl O. Lederer, and her second husband, Joseph Druzbicki. She is survived by her uncle, Tony Digregorio, her stepson, Earl Lederer, and his wife, Jayne, their two children, Andrew and his wife Melissa, and Aaron and his wife Brooke. She is also survived by five great-grandchildren, Emily, Daniel, Isaac, Grayson and Maddox, her step-daughter-in-law, Paula Druzbicki as well as nieces, cousins and extended family. Her family and dear friends were her heart and joy.
Urania had a passion for helping people and for the last consecutive 30 years she volunteered as a full-time minister supporting her neighbors to find practical help in coping with life’s challenges. She was well known for her kindness, support, compassion and faith. She led a vibrant life and loved to travel. She loved sharing her adventures in Europe, Aruba, and Alaska as well as surviving an earthquake in California.
A funeral service will be held on Saturday, December 15, 2018 at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses at 1054 Victory Highway, North Smithfield, RI at 1pm.
Memorial contributions may be made to the Douglas Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses, PO BOX 1231, Douglas, MA. 01516
