SOURCE: Alexander Skowronski, Frances Dymek, Michael J. Danko, Jean B. Skowronski Sharron grave marker, Notre Dame Cemetery, Holy Family Section, Lot 245, Graves 1, 2, 3, 3OB, 4 (Worcester County), Massachusetts, photographed by Stephen J. Danko, 09 Sep 2005.

This marker shows that Alexander Skowronski (1887-1970) and his wife Francis Dymek (1888-1963) are buried here along with Michael J. Danko (1913-1981) and his wife Jean B. Skowronski Sharron (1917-1996).

Jean B. Skowronski Sharron was the daughter of Alexander Skowronski and Frances Dymek.  Jean was also the wife of my paternal uncle, Michael J. Danko.  Jean’s full name on the gravestone reflects the fact that she was married to Robert H. Sharron before his untimely death in 1946.  Robert Sharron is buried elsewhere in Notre Dame Cemetery.

The motto on the front of the monument reads (in Polish) “Proszę o Zdrowaś Marja”, which means “I ask for a ‘Hail Mary’ “.

Alexander is buried in Grave 1, Frances in Grave 2, Jean in Grave 3, and Michael in Grave 4.  Cemetery records show that there is another burial in this lot (in Grave 3OB), not inscribed on the monument.  In addition, the lot contains two additional markers flush with the ground.

Tomorrow: About the additional burial and the two additional markers.

  1. Hi Steve!

    This is an excellent example of a two-sided monument and one that includes multiple persons’ inscriptions. I am curious, however, about the small round medallion stake. Even at full size, I can’t read all the writing on the face. I see “U.S.” but can’t make out the rest. Can you tell me about it?


  2. HI George, the round medallion stake simply says “U.S. VETERAN”. I’ll include a slightly better photo of this medallion in my post on 25 Feb 2007.
