On the afternoon of February 23, 2018, Cynthia Ann (Kociban) Ratkus, 74, formerly of Williamsburg, VA passed away peacefully in Charlotte, NC after her long battle with Alzheimers. Cynthia, known as “Sis” to all who loved her, was born in Munhall, PA, married her high-school sweetheart Theodore Ratkus and built a life together that lasted 51 years until his death in 2016. Her family, and her role as wife, mother and grandmother, was the most important thing to her. This is where she drew her strength and left her legacy of her love, her brilliant smile and fun loving spirit. The ways she touched our lives will remain.
Sis is survived by the three of us, Lisa (Paul) Bolejack, Pam (Jay) Wilmott and Carrie (Michael) Roberts, her 8 grandchildren, and her siblings Ernest (Dorothy) Kociban, Marion Kociban and Elaine (Terry) Hill, all who are blessed with many memories of their mom, grandmother and sister.
A funeral mass and inurnment will be held 11am, Friday, March 9, 2018, 11 at St. Bede Catholic Church, Williamsburg, VA. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Walk to End Alzheimers under the “SISters Team.” We will be walking in our mom’s memory on October 13, 2018.
