Obituary for Barbara Jean (Rae) Augusztin
Barbara Jean (Rae) Augusztin, age 73, of Jacksonville, Florida and formerly of Bridgeport and Stratford, died Saturday, September 22, 2012, in Florida after a brief illness. Barbara was born September 27, 1938 in the Bronx, daughter of the late Robert and Myra Rae; and beloved mother of Michael Augusztin of Stratford and Richard Augusztin of Florida. She was the oldest of seven children and moved with her parents to Bridgeport, Connecticut where she was later joined by her six siblings. At an early age, her parents suffered an untimely death. She and her siblings were separated and adopted by various families. Despite the loss and the separation of her family, Barbara was proud of and cherished her sons, was a great role model and was a loving and devoted mother and grandmother. After attending local schools, Barbara lived most of her life in Bridgeport and Stratford with her former husband, Michael Augusztin, her sons and their dog Spike, before moving to Florida in 1998. She was employed by Waterbury Pen Company and later Valley Container where she enjoyed working as a Full Charge Bookkeeper for many years. In addition to her sons, she is survived by her daughter-in-law, Laura of Stratford, (Mike's wife); her adored granddaughters Christina Marie, Alexandra Rose, Michaela Grace, and Isabella Renee; two brothers, Richard Rae of Madison, and William Rae of Stratford; one sister, Patricia Valliere of Jacksonville, Florida, as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by two brothers and one sister, Edward Porter, Donald Shea, and Josephine Agrella. The family had a private ceremony and there will be no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to: Stratford Animal Rescue Society (S.T.A.R.S.), P.O. Box 1371, Stratford Connecticut 06614. Friends may sign the online guestbook at:
