August 22, 2013 – Calgary, AB
Anastazja was born in Howilow Maly, Poland. She served in WW II in the British 8th Army, Polish 2nd Corps and proudly fought in Italy at Monte Cassino. She met and married Stanislaw (Stanley) during the war and immigrated to Canada in 1948, settling in Coleman and then moving to Calgary in 1958.
Anastazja was an avid gardener and took pride in her beautiful yard. She was a great cook and her Sunday dinners brought her family together. She was an active member of the SPK Polish Combatants Association Women’s Auxiliary and volunteered endless hours. Anastazja’s generosity extended beyond her immediate family, to family in Poland and new Polish Canadian immigrants.
Anastazja is survived and lovingly remembered by her children, Beatrice (David) Dickins, Mary (Wayne) McDougall, Lucy (Tim) Henry and Mark (Edith) Sokolowski; grandchildren, Paul (Maggie), Gregory McDougall, David, Mark (Monika) Dickins and great-grandson Mikael McDougall; and special niece Grazyna (Art) Deviat.
