Obituary for Raili H. Komonen

Raili H. Komonen, 84, passed away on Saturday, March 31 at the Finnish American Rest Home in Lake Worth, Florida after a long battle with metastatic breast cancer.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 7 at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Lake Worth (928 South E Street, 33460).

Raili Helena Määttänen was born on March 19, 1934 in Käkisalmi, Finland. Her childhood was marred by the horrors of war and life as a refugee, and her family was forced to leave their home in Käkisalmi. They resettled in Heinola, where she graduated from high school, found work as a bank teller and eventually met watchmaker Matti Komonen.

Raili and Matti were married in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada in 1955, where their two daughters were born. The family immigrated to Lake Worth in 1963. Raili and Matti owned and worked in their own Jewelry/Watch Repair store there for over 40 years and were active members in the Finnish-American community.

Raili was preceded in death by Matti (after 54 years of marriage) and by her only sibling - brother Seppo Määttänen. Raili is survived by her daughters, Pirjo Campitelli (Robert) and Tuula Webster (Wayne); granddaughter Anna Rubenstein (Aaron); grandson Jon Campitelli (Linda), great-granddaughter Madison Campitelli and numerous loving family and friends.

Memorial contributions can be made to St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church Memorial Fund.
