Nancy J. Higgins

Nancy (Gorski) Higgins, beloved wife of Norman Higgins, entered peacefully into eternal life surrounded by her family on Wednesday May 25, 2022.  Born in Hartford on July 10,1951, daughter of the late Louis Gorski Sr. and Anastasia (Pawluk) Gorski. 

Nancy raised her family in Glastonbury, continually exemplifying her spiritual strength, teaching us all to be humble, patient and above all to love one another, while always praying to our Lord Jesus. Nancy always said “I don’t mind getting older because I am getting closer to Jesus “. Nothing brought more joy than her family and friends including her beloved pets. Nancy worked at Patrons Ins. and Amica Ins. but most of her talent was saved for the Church family while volunteering and chairing many committees over 30 years. Nancy brilliantly reflected the kindness of her grandfather, The Very Reverend John Pawluk. She was truly one of God’s Shining Stars and left this world a better place. 

Nancy was predeceased by her sister Ann Carney and is survived by a sister Sandra Gorski and a brother Louis Gorski Jr.  daughters Christine and husband, the late Gregory Priest, Kimberly Eagen and husband Robert, granddaughters Kelly, Ashley, Katelyn, Jacqueline, Nicole and nieces, nephews, many cousins and their loved ones. A heartfelt thanks to all of Nancy’s Htfd. Health Care Hospice group and all of her Dr’s past and present. We are blessed to have such dedicated, caring and loving support and will forever be grateful.  

A Mass will be celebrated on Saturday June 4, at 11:00 am in St. Augustine Church, 55 Hopewell Rd, South Glastonbury. There are no calling hours. In lieu of flowers memorial gifts in Nancy Higgins name, may be made to: Saints Isidore & Maria Parish, 2577 Main St. Glastonbury, CT. 06033 and First Church of Christ 2183 Main St. Glastonbury CT. 06033.
