Edith Ratajczyk

Edith A. (Malin) Ratajczyk, age 78, of Rochester, MN, passed away on Sunday, September 5, 2021, at the Spring Valley Care Center in Spring Valley, MN.

She was born on June 12, 1943, in Winona, to Fred and Theresa (Penchi) Malin.  Edith was the first woman to be employed as a janitor with Mayo Clinic at St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester, where she worked for 26 years.

Edith’s greatest joy in life was the love she had for her family.  She enjoyed attending the sporting and musical events of her grandchildren, and she thoroughly enjoyed family get-togethers, especially her family reunions in Italy.

Edith is survived by her children: Renea (Stephen) Votruba, Daniel (Elizabeth) Ratajczyk, and Kevin Ratajczyk; 9 grandchildren: Lacey and Emily Ratajczyk; Rebecca Albrecht; Jessica Retterath; and Elijah, Michael, Joel, Abel and Nathan Ratajczyk; her siblings: Jane (Don) Anderson; Fred (Eva) Malin, Jr.; Marty (Julia) Malin; Tom Malin; Mike Malin; and Steve Malin; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her son, Dave Ratajczyk; parents; her twin brothers: Robert and Richard Malin; and a sister-in-law: Karen Malin.
