Anna Zietkiewicz was one of nine children born to Jan and Anna Bryla of Krakow, Poland. Anna lost her mother at a young age, towards the end of World War II. She and her sisters helped run the household with their father. Some time after the war, Anna met her husband, Antoni Zietkiewicz through her older brother, Josef. The two were married in a civil ceremony in Cieplice and shortly thereafter she emigrated with her new husband to Newark, New York where they were married at St. Michael church in June of 1960. Newark remained her home until the time of her death. She retired from Garlock in1985 after 20 years of service.
