In 1942, my grandparents were still living at 18 Huntington Ave., but my grandfather’s occupation had apparently changed again.
Kostanty and Helen A. Niedzialkowski are listed in the 1942 Worcester Directory published by R.L. Polk & Co.

Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Worcester Directory 1942 Entry for Kostanty and Helen Niedzialkowski. The brief record states the following:
Kostanty Niedzialkowski was a set up man for Worcester Pressed Steel Company who resided at 18 Huntington av,
his wife’s name was Helen A.;
his daughter, Natalie V., worked as a secretary for Ryan & Harrington and resided at 18 Huntington av;
his son, Raymond, worked as a clerk at Soloway’s Market and resided at 18 Huntington av.
My grandfather’s occupation as a set up man may or may not be different than that of his jobs described in earlier directories. Here, his employer is clearly listed as Worcester Pressed Steel.
As of 1940, my Aunt Natalie was employed as a secretary for Ryan & Harrington. Other directory entries show that Frank P. Ryan and Alf. D. Harrington were lawyers doing business from 332 Main, Room 308, just down the hall from her previous employer.
The residence, 18 Huntington Avenue, was owned by his uncle, Frank Niedzialkoski.
The name Damian Niedzialkowski again appears in the directory. I still don’t know if or how Damian is related.
