Ms. Zina, despite her 93 years, is very sociable, has a good memory and mentally fit. She has had a stroke, which makes her difficult to walk, but one can spend long hours with her, listening to her stories from the past. She remembers good and bad times in her life. She was born in Nowa Wola village and has lived here all her life. As she claims, she was not in the hospital until the age of ninety.
She married young, but soon her husband died. She stayed with three children – two sons and a daughter, who she raised practically on her own. And it was hard, because together with her husband they built farm buildings and started building a house but she was finishing the construction alone. She could always count on the help of her family, but also none of the neighbors refused to help her. She was just liked by everyone.
She raised pigs and set aside money to finish the house after each sale. Now she is proud of it and is glad that after returning from the hospital, she did not have to go to an inpatient hospice. Thanks to the care of her son who came to Nowa Wola to live with his mother and the constant care of a doctor and caretaker of our home hospice, she can spent her last years in her own home.
