BRYK, Julianna
By Anita LAHEY, Page A16
Grandmother, seamstress, farmer, cook. Born April 7, 1913, at Budziska, Poland. Died May 31, in Hamilton, Ontario, of an abdominal aneurysm, aged 93.
Julianna Adas was born on a farm in a small Polish village, about 100 kilometres northeast of Krakow. If asked by one of her 16 Canadian-born grandchildren or 18 great-grandchildren to talk about her Polish home, Babci -- our family's variation of Babcia, the Polish word for grandmother -- would usually shrug. "Farm. Small place. What wanted I'm tell you?"
There was much to tell. She was baptized at the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, a grand, stone, Roman Catholic structure built in 1402 and decorated with sculptures of candy-coloured cherubs. In that same church, she married the young farmer Roman BRYK 22 years later. In 1936, Julianna gave birth to Anne, the first of five children. By then, most of the BRYK siblings had left depressed Poland; Roman and Julianna followed suit.
Accompanied by their toddler Anne, three-week-old Carol, and Roman's widowed mother, they travelled north to Gdynia on the Baltic Sea, where, in the autumn of 1938, they boarded the Stefan Batory II, bound for Halifax. Polish-speaking nuns at Pier 21 in Halifax helped arrange travel to Hamilton, Ontario, where the other Bryks had settled. The extended family lived together at times 15 strong -- in a small farmhouse on the Hamilton Mountain, without heat or running water. Julianna and Roman later moved to their own farm in Burlington, but their crops of grapes and animal feed, Julianna's vast vegetable garden, and the cows and chickens they kept -- didn't always stretch far enough. There were years during which she worked in a paper and plastic bag factory, rising at 4 a.m. to walk there along the train tracks. She would return midday with raw-skinned hands that she would then apply to a task such as trimming back grapevines. Julianna spent most of her life away from her homeland, struggling with a foreign language, yet became the matriarch of a tri-generational brood that now includes mechanics, office workers, salespeople, an engineer, a writer, a teacher, a hairdresser, an ultrasound technician, and an accountant -- all of whom greeted her, always, with a kiss. For each scion's birthday she mailed a card containing $20 or $30 she could ill afford to part with. She sent all visitors off with a loaf of zucchini bread or a batch of homemade pierogy or a dozen fresh paczki (jam-filled doughnuts) stuffed into a plastic bag that would be tied in so many knots a person might need a crowbar to open it.
In other ways, her manner was not outwardly nurturing. When two of her adult granddaughters asked to be taught how to make her cabbage rolls, she prepared the filling and cabbage beforehand, and simply oversaw the rolling. One granddaughter was told, "You do good job." To the other she announced, after inspecting her work, "You no make no more."
She was always preparing herself for the worst. When one grandchild came to visit before moving to Colombia for a teaching gig, Babci bid her farewell with the words, "I'm probably no see you again!" When another learned to speak some Polish she merely remarked, "Ah, you soon forget." A devout Catholic, she prayed the rosary daily and recited prayers -- some designated for particular progeny from an illustrated Polish prayer book that was buried with her. She diligently followed all the doings of the first Polish pope, John Paul II. She also monitored the goings-on in her enormous family; she was the main conduit through which news travelled, good or bad. Now her descendants are left to keep in touch on their own, to say their own prayers and to try, should any of them dare, to replicate her pierogy.
Anita LAHEY is Julianna's granddaughter.
