She was predeceased by her husband Adam, parents Jozef and Maria Staron, her siblings Katarzyna, Anna, and Michal Staron, and son Jozef Skowronek.

Aniela was a hard-working survivor who lived through two world wars in Poland. She had an incredible sense of humor and memory until the end of her life. She loved singing her favorite songs and poems. She loved Polish food, especially pierogies. She had a huge passion for the outdoors. She lived on a farm and took care of all the animals growing up and she even planted forests. She especially loved collecting wild mushrooms and wild blueberries in the forests of Poland. She will be missed by us all.

Aniela was the oldest Polish person in Houston – she lived 104 years. She was surrounded by family and friends at her 100th birthday celebration four years ago.
