Daniela Antonina Dobiszewski
12/09/1933 - 03/27/2023

Daniela was born on December 9, 1933 in Ostrow, Poland, the only child of Joseph and Maria Bala. In 1947, five years after her father was sent away to fight in WW II and was presumed to be a casualty of the war, her mother received a message from him instructing her to meet in Scotland. Daniela and her mom managed to escape from German occupied Poland through Russia, meet up with her dad, and on February 4, 1948, the three of them set sail for the United States on the Queen Mary that is now docked in Long Beach, CA. Unfortunately, Joseph died shortly after docking in Newark, NJ.

At sixteen Daniela learned the English language while working part-time and attending high school at night, graduating in 1952. While she was raising her four children Daniela obtained her driver’s license, became a United States citizen and began working at Wausau Insurance in West Orange, NJ in 1969 until she retired 25 years later.

Life at 65 had Daniela buying a home in Leisuretown, in Southampton, NJ where she resided for 19 years before going to live with her daughter in Wilmington, DE. She became a volunteer in different community offices that offered assistance to the senior citizens living in Leisuretown as well as becoming an active member in Holy Eucharist Church.

Daniela was a charitable, family-oriented individual who was married to her loving husband Frank Dobiszewski for 35 years before he died in 1989.  In addition to her four children Debra (Daniel), Marie (Michael), Elaine (Thomas) and Frank (Robin), she is also survived by her eleven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Her determination and love of life gave Daniela the strength to overcome harsh challenges. Because of this resilience her legacy will be celebrated for years to come.
