Nana’s Family

Nana's Family

A family picture of my mother’s mother, whom we called Nana.

Her father was Emiljan Janinka (changed to Janicki after he arrived in the United States from Poland) and her mother was Marya Rybinska. Nana (Anne Mary) is on the right and her sister Hedwig is in the middle (we called her Ciocia Hattie, ciocia meaning aunt in Polish). Missing from the picture are Josephine and Henry, two children who died when they were very young.

Nana was born on August 18, 1917 in Wilmington, Delaware. She died on January 20, 2000.

Happy Birthday Nana.

  1. Iove your collection of photograhs of the Janicki family. My grandmother was Tillie Janicki Kukla. She was married to Michal Kukla. They resided in Manhattan N.Y. until 1932 when they moved to Griswold Pachaug Ct. There childrens namewere Josephine, Helen and William. Could we be related?

    • Hi Madeline, thanks for your comment. I don’t know if we are related or not, I will have to check with my Mom. I am not very familiar with the Janicki family history and the extended family members.
