Stanislawa was born in Poland and immigrated to Canada in 1966. Since arriving here she lived in Edmonton, Vancouver and has resided in Calgary since 1989. Even though she did not have any children of her own, her legacy was that she helped raise not only her younger brothers and sisters but several nieces and nephews.
