Bride

Bride

My maternal grandmother’s wedding portrait.

Nana and Pop (Anne Janicki and Felix Ference) were married on November 20, 1938 at St. Hedwig’s Roman Catholic church in Wilmington. My Mom and I went to Mass there a week ago. It’s just a block from where she grew up, in what used to be the Polish section of town. The life of Mom’s family was centered around that church.

Nana was 21 years old when she was married. An absolutely beautiful picture.
