Aniela Cimala, 93, Of Passaic

PASSAIC, N.J. – Aniela Cimala, a resident of Passaic, died on Wednesday, Jan. 13. She was 93.

Cimala was born in Poland in 1920 after the World War I and as one of nine children, she was raised on a farm in post war Poland. She was taken from her home in 1939 by the Nazis and forced to work as unpaid farm labor in Austria, where she was treated inhumanely, until she was freed by the Allies in 1944. She made her way to Italy, working as a civilian cook for the British troops who brought her to England in 1946.

She is survived by her niece Christina Stephenson of Salem, Vir. She is also survived by her son John and his wife Diana Cimala of Oceanport, NJ.; grandsons Christopher and his fiancé Rita Drevis of Sea Bright, NJ.; and Bryan and his wife Samantha of Woodbury, NY.
