She met her husband and married in 1947 then in 1949 they moved to Brasil. In Curitiba she had a daughter Leocadia in 1965 the family moved to Canada and were sponsored by friends Nina and Bronislaw Dalecki.

She was lucky to have a wonderful PSW Bernadeta Kaczmarek who became her second daughter, she loved cooking and to have visitors, she loved all her friends in Canada and Brasil. She died the way that she wanted, in her sleep, at home, with her family Leocadia, son-in-law Boleslaw, grandsons Simon and Robert.
