LUBEC – Genevieve (Kaczynski) Dyndiuk, 94, died April 6, 2009, at a Lubec nursing facility. She was born Oct. 18, 1914, in Newington, Conn., one of five children of Polish immigrants Stanley and Michelina (Chmelewski) Kaczynski. In 1932, she married Alexander Dyndiuk. They then moved to Bristol, Conn., and later to Southington, Conn. She was very busy working side by side her husband, Alexander, building the Dyndiuk Sport, including sewing all the fabric that covered it and applying the several coats of adhesive to hold it together. The Dyndiuk Sport is a small plane that was only allowed to fly once in Rocky Hill, Conn., and is now on display in the New England Air Museum, Bradley Field, Conn. She worked for Historic Peck, Stow and Wilcox Factory-Ideal Forging, Southington, Conn., during World War II. After the war, she went to work for Grillo’s Florist, Southington, Conn., a developer of many rose varieties. She then attended Boston School of Floral Design, and went on to own and operate her own florist business in Southington, Conn., for 10 years. Before moving to Maine, she worked for Allied Control, Milldale, Conn., where she soldered delays for government projects. She was a very active member in The Degree of Pocahontas – Improved Order of Redman. Later, Jennie and her husband became very involved with visiting Native American tribes and learning their customs especially in the Mohawk Trail area of Massachusetts. During all this busy time she never lost her love for her flower gardens. Her gardens were as beautiful in Connecticut as they were in Maine. When they moved to Maine they belonged to St. Croix Rock Hunter’s Club. She was predeceased by her husband of 42 years, Alexander Dyndiuk Sr.; two sons, Alexander Jr. and Chester; a brother, Stanley Kaczynski; two sisters, Helen and Mamie; and a brother-in-law, Ted Dyndiuk and his wife, Mae.
