Angela was born on February 20, 1920, in Brenham, Texas to Steve and Martha Nowak Twardowski. She passed away on November 26, 2019, three months shy of her 100th birthday.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Theodore Janczak in 2002, her son Tommy Janczak, infant daughter Dolores Janczak, her parents, Martha and Steve Twardowski, her brothers Bruno and Louis Twardowski, and sister Esthera Gregory.

She is survived by her children, Marvin Janczak (Gloria) of Rosenberg, Dorothy Khawaja (Eddie) of Austin, Diane Durand (Jody) of Round Rock, and Cindy Blinka (Rodney) of Rosenberg. She is also survived by 15 grandchildren, 2 step-grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren (with one on the way), and 12 step-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Barbara Ubernosky, and sisters-in-law Gladys Janczak and Bessie Janacek.

As a young girl, Angela and her family lived in one of the red-roofed houses, and they farmed on the A.P. George Ranch.

Her father Steve Twardowski was a share cropper who farmed cotton and corn. Angela attended school in the small schoolhouse on the ranch through 7th grade.

After Angela and Ted married on Jan. 23, 1946, her time was spent being a wife and mother on their farm. In addition to the farm, they always had a large garden where she enjoyed picking fresh vegetables, which she says was her secret to her long and healthy life.

Angela loved her family get-togethers with all her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren around her.

Her hobbies included crocheting, baking cookies and angel food cake, reading her prayer books, and watching the Mollie B Polka Party show every Saturday night.

She was a member of the Holy Rosary KJZT, Holy Rosary Altar Society, and a life-time member of the American Legion Auxiliary.

Donations can be made in her name to Holy Rosary Catholic Church Building Fund.

Angela will be remembered for her sweet personality who always brought joy to anyone who met her. “Granny,” as she was known to most, will be forever missed by everyone who loved her.
