Obituary

Alfreda passed to her heavenly home April 6, 2019, to be with Marceli Marecki (husband), and all her family and friends. Alfreda was born October, 23, 1926, in Swieciechow, Poland, born to Boleslaw and Marianna Domagalski (nee Targos). She had three sisters (Henryka (Kryj), Zofia (Kosno), and Boleslawa (Galat), and many relatives. During WWII, she was taken from her home by the Nazis, and forced into slave labor in Germany. After liberation, she met her husband, Marceli, and started her own family. In 1949 she immigrated to the United States and settled in Detroit with her husband and first born son, where their family grew to include two more sons and a daughter. Alfreda had many talents, and passions, including cooking, baking, sewing, crocheting, and spending time with family, friends, and loved ones. She enjoyed watching her favorite movies (especially The Sound of Music) and the occasional casino jaunt. She was employed at the Fisher Building in Downtown Detroit for over 30 years, and traveled numerous times to visit family and friends in Poland. Always a woman of incredible strength and fortitude, Alfreda was also a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend, and companion to so many. Throughout her life, Alfreda was a woman of unshakable faith in God, with outstanding love and pride in her heritage. In her later years, Alfreda lived surrounded by family in Richmond, Michigan, where she continued to reside until her passing. She will be missed by many, including those that survive her: Children; Robert (deceased), wife Marie, Richard wife Susann (deceased), Stanley wife Kathy, Mary Jane Szczerbinski husband Gerard. Grandchildren; Angelique, Marcel, Alexander (Melissa), Monica (John), Kasia (fiancé John), and Victoria. Great-grandchildren; Robert (Barker), Alayna, and Collin.
