Born in Warsaw, Poland on Feb. 5, 1922, she was the daughter of Stefan and Franciszka Duczynski. Stefania was raised and educated in Warsaw, Poland. She was taken to a labor camp in Germany during World War II after being detained by German authorities during the Warsaw Uprising. After the war, while living at a Displaced Persons Camp in Benheim, Germany, she met, fell in love with, and married Boleslaw on July 16, 1946.
In 1950, after having lived at a Displaced Persons Camp in Wildflecken, Germany for several years, they and their 3-year- old son Andrew resettled to Hanoverton, Ohio thanks to the generosity and kindness of their American sponsor. A year later, they moved to Boston where they lived for many years, raising a family of three boys until retiring to Marstons Mills on the Cape for the next 24 years.
Stefania was predeceased by the love of her life and husband of 66 years in February of 2013.
