March 20, 1948 — October 22, 2021
Charlton: Wrona, Stanley, 73, of Main Street passed away on Friday, October 22, 2021 at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Worcester, Mass. after a long illness.
He leaves his wife, Jane (Maynard) Wrona after 43 years of marriage, his brother Jeffrey Wrona and his wife, Jean, of West Townsend, and his sister, Zofia Polakowski, of Fiskdale.
Stanley was born in Lubiczko, Poland, the son of John and Bronislawa (Gawel) Wrona, who later emigrated to the United States.
Stanley’s work: Stanley served in the National Guard for 6 years. He worked at the American Optical for many years and later worked at A&M Tool and Die in Southbridge as a delivery driver, and at Southbridge Tool, before retirement.
Stanley had a close bond with his three nieces: Tanya Maynard, Heather Maynard and Brianna Maynard. He had a special bond with Tanya as they always celebrated their birthdays together on March 20th. Growing up, Stan and the three girls loved sitting in front of the TV, eating snacks and watching Star Trek movies. Stan was very proud of his niece Heather for her achievement in becoming a licensed aeronautics mechanic.
The Wrona's loved bringing Brianna to Maine, when she was real little, to see the Nubble Lighthouse and then had dinner at Yoken’s Restaurant in Wells, Maine.
Stanley loved working in the yard and watering Jane’s flowers to make them bloom and beautify the front yard of their house. Many passers-by complemented them on their beautiful flowers. The couple loved going on nature walks and holding hands for they were deeply in love.
The Wrona's enjoyed going on trips with Jane’s brother, Ken and his wife, Linda Maynard, and seeing beautiful sights like The Great Smokies in Tennessee, Texas to visit family, Sedona and Jerome, Arizona, The Grand Canyon, The Calaveras Big Trees, Angel’s Camp, and Yosemite National Park all in California.
Stan loved strawberry shortcake. While at a family pool party, Jane’s cousin Karla once treated him to a big dish of it smothered in whipped cream and his eyes got big as silver dollars when he saw it. He never had anything so good. Cousin Sherry and Russell Moskowitz invited Stan and Jane to many cook-outs and pool parties at their house and had been very close to each other over the years.
Stan had a close bond with Jane’s brother, Ken. They had numerous heart to-heart conversations over the years, and whenever Stan had health issues, Ken, who was an R.N., was involved with his health decisions with the doctors.
Jane and Stan’s favorite song was, “A Summer Place” by Percy Faith and his Orchestra.
Stanley was well liked by family and his many friends, and will be missed a lot, especially by his wife and soulmate, Jane.
