Obituary of Beatrice E. Czelusniak

Beatrice E. (Vitale) Czelusniak, 78, of Brooklyn, CT passed away Monday, February 20, 2023 at her home surrounded by her family. She was the beloved wife of Michael Czelusniak. Beatrice was born January 31, 1945, daughter of the late Vincent Vitale and Gladys Maude Wilson. 


She was an amazing mother, grandmother, sister and wife. She was also a talented artist and a fabulous baker (best apple pie and rice krispy treats) Bea had so much love to give and with outstretched arms she kept us all together and safe. She always told us to love one another.


Besides her husband Michael, she leaves behind two sisters, Gladys Fanelli and Rose Stemphoski. The bond they had was like no other, they had each other’s back and they loved immensely. Bea also had three children, her daughter Tiffany Gould and her children, Jacob, Lucie, Joseph, Kayla, Haley, and Brett. Her son Jeffrey Czelusniak and his wife Aggie Czelusniak and their children, Sierra, Laquandra, and Lassandra. Her son James Czelusniak and Jen Stahl and their children, Jackson, Juliet and Evangeline. Also six great grandchildren who she adored.


It is difficult to say goodbye to a woman we loved our whole lives. Sunset came too early. We are here and her love continues to live on in us all. Our circles are still spinning.

All my life’s a circle

And I can’t tell you why

The seasons keep on spinning

The years keep rolling by

All my life’s a circle 

Sunrise and sundown

I just can’t shake this feeling 

That we’ll all be together again.
