    Omaha NebraskaI was saddened to hear of Aunt Hetty’s passing. If we had been advised sooner we would definitely made arrangement to be there. Aunt Hetty was a great Aunt. She was always happy-go-lucky and fun to be around. A great seamstress and an exceptional cook which she proved every time we visited. She will sorely be missed. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all.

    Brenda and I have wonderful memories of Hetty, but we also wish to share a message from Zenon Woznika (Poznan, Poland) who introduced us to Hetty and who thought the world of her. Zenon had several year-long (and longer) research studies at ND
    SU and is currently one of the top researchers in Poland.

    “I had many wonderful memories, and remember many visits with her when I was in Fargo. She was a spectacular woman, sometimes too good I think, especially when she trusted other people too much. She didn’t believe that others would not be good also. Hatty helped many people in Poland during the toughest times, i.e. Marshal law and Solidarity times. She was not rich financially, but she sent many parcels to many families in Poland during those times. Sharing this with others would be appreciated by hundreds of Polish families she helped during those difficult times. Hetty was the best of the very best.”

    What a wonderful and dear friend Hetty was to me. She showed love, kindness, joy, patience, caring and always had a smile. We played cards together and I did manicures for her. She was a delight to be around. Hetty gave to me a wonderful most people have a hard time doing, true friendship. God bless her family and friends. My sympathy to all her family.

    Hetty was my best friend that I visited at Bethany. She was a wonderful person who gave me smiles when I needed them. Got to know her through visiting, giving her manicures, playing cards, praying, and talking with her. She became a great friend that I will never forget. My sympathy goes to her family. God bless you all.
