She married Leon Groszkowski on Oct. 22, 1966, in St. Casimir's Church in Buffalo. 

While the family was living in Cheektowaga from 1968 to 1995, Mrs. Groszkowski was an active member and lector in Infant of Prague Church.

From 1977 to 1987, she led Troop 1261 Junior and Cadette Girl Scout Troop, which met at the Cleveland Drive Lutheran Church in Cheektowaga.

The family moved to Lockport in 1995, and Mrs. Groszkowski joined St. Mary's Church in Gasport, where she also coordinated Vacation Bible School.

Mrs. Groszkowski retired in 2002. 

She was an active member and past president and board member of the Amherst Quilt Guild. "She was an award winning quilter," said her daughter. "She made quilts of all sizes using traditional patterns and more recently designing her own."

The traditional quilts she sewed were based on antique patterns reproduced by the Amherst Quilt Guild.

Mrs. Groszkowski donated hundreds of her quilted creations to Roswell Park, Women and Children's Hospital, Erie County Medical Center, the Erie County Home, the Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Buffalo General Medical Center.

Through her friends in the quilt guild, she made contact with active duty military members and donated quilts to the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station and Wounded Warriors.
