While in Thunder Bay , Joanne , Debra & I went in search of my mom's dad's grave site. Cool huh! My mom has been looking for it for years, we finally got a map & went to find it. I took my video camera so I could show mom if we did find it.
My grandfather, or Gido, is what we would have called him, had died years before my mom was even married, she was just a teenager I think, so I never met him obviously. His name was Stephen Lewicka, this name eventually got changed a million times, it shows up as Lewiska, Lewicky, & Livitski. The latter is what my mom went by.
Stephen was married before he married my Baba, that is why it says Anna on the headstone, mom's family couldn't afford to have his name printed on the stone, sad :(
This was an arranged marriage for my Baba who came from the Ukraine , he was quite a bit older then her, but he was a good, kind man.
I actually like going to grave yards, so much history.
