I am so sorry for your loss. Genowefa Draczynska nee Krahel lived during the II world war at the house of my grandmother's grandfather Franciszek Dudziuk. He knew Dominik Krahel from the time when they lived in New Britain before the I world war. In this way Genowefa met her future husband Józef Draczynski who was Franciszek Dudziuk's neighbour.
My grandmother who knew Genwoefa passed away last December at age of 90 so I know what you feel.
