On Thursday, January 18, 2018, Regina Falkowski died peacefully in her sleep while surrounded by family in her home, at the age of 93. A native of Bridgehampton, Regina lived an active life, as homemaker and caregiver for her family, contributor to maintaining the family farm, and involvement in the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Church.
Regina was predeceased by her three brothers, Jerome, John and Michael Skonieczny, and her three sisters, Jean Hoinski, Mary Schwonik and Hattie Yastrzemski.
Regina always loved the farm, first supporting her late husband of 53 years (Joseph), subsequently continuing her involvement in the family farming business once her son (Tom) took over operations and expanded into the Country Garden Farm Stand, and finally watching over the farm from her home perched on a hillside. She loved to cook Polish delicacies and enjoyed playing card games with her friends.
Regina is survived by her three sons, John, Thomas and J. Michael Falkowski; her daughter Nancy DePetris; nine grandchildren; and thirteen great-grandchildren.
