Birth: Aug. 7, 1888, Ukraine
Death: Jun. 4, 1967
Orange County
California, USA

Anna worked as a waitress in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada prior to her marriage. She arrived in Canada with her brother, Paul, in 1910. It is believed her maiden name was spelled MARCZYSZYN on entry to Canada and the spelling was changed to Marchyshyn much later by Alex. She and Paul proceeded directly to Regina. Her hair was dark brown and never did grey, she had brown eyes and was slightly under 5 feet tall. She had a fair complexion and a wide gap between her front two teeth. She did speak English quite well but not as well as Ukrainian. She washed clothes for a family of six children on a scrubbing board until the 1930s when they could afford their Maytag washing machine - which she treasured. In Regina she never did enjoy indoor plumbing and the water had to be carried in pails from half a block away, and the outhouse was in the back yard. She did have a very good sewing machine and certainly made use of it over the years. She made her own bread. She loved to cook traditional Ukrainian foods. She was not a churchgoer in deference to her husband, but was very religious and said her prayers every morning and night and always prayed for each of her children. Written by her son, Mark.
