Jane Niedzialkowski Danko's Gravestone

I’ve been working all day on the genealogy classes I’m taking through the National Institute for Genealogical Studies / University of Toronto, so I didn’t have much time to blog.  Nonetheless, I thought I’d at least post a photo.

My mother died in 1980 in Albany, New York, and is buried in Our Lady of Angels Cemetery.  I took the following snapshot while I was in Albany in July.

Gravestone for Jane Danko

The flowers around the gravestone are rather tame this year.  My sisters, my father, and my cousins keep the flowers watered all through the growing season, so the area is usually full of color even when the grass is brown and dry.

Although you can’t read the inscription from the photograph, the stone reads:

DANKO
SORROW IS NOT FOREVER
LOVE IS

FRANCIS J.                                    JANE A.
    1924 -                                      1922 – HIS WIFE – 1980

The grave is located within Our Lady of Angels Cemetery at St. Francis Shrine – A, Row D, Grave 8.

  2. Cheryl,

    It’s always nice to read a comment from you! Since you live fairly close to where I live, we should get together for lunch some day and meet each other!

    As for my mother’s death – she died of sepsis. By the time the doctors realized what was wrong, it was already too late.

    I live very close in my eyes, and I would be honored to meet you and have lunch one day! :-)

    I needed to look up sepsis, I had never heard of it before, learn something new everyday. So sad that they didn’t know in time………so sorry….
