Friday February 5, 2021

Nina Anisimowa Bajgrowicz passed away February 5, 2021 in Merrillville after a long illness and a recent fall. She was 96.

Nina was born in 1924 to Gregory Anisimow and Erna Dishler.  She spent her early childhood years in Latvia and then in Belarus.  She survived capture by the Nazis and work detail at Auschwitz, then Krakow, and finally work detail on a German farm where she met her future husband. They came to America and settled in Gary, Indiana. Wladyslaw worked in the steel mill and Nina worked at Bare Bran hosiery and later Medical Personnel pool.  She actively volunteered to teach immigrants English and with her accounting background, to do taxes for those in need.  She retired to Merrillville, IN after her husband's death.  She greatly appreciated all of her special neighbors to include Gloria Stapleton and caregivers Anna and Lydia.

She is now reunited with husband Wladyslaw, daughter-in-law Bernice Myers Bajgrowicz, and others who predeceased her.  She is survived by her three sons, Walt (Maryanne) Bajgrowicz, Yury Bajgrowicz and Richard (Jan) Bajgrowicz, four grandsons Chris (Tina), Alex (Melinda), Justin and Brian Bajgrowicz, and six great-grandchildren, Kaylee, Lyndsey, Avery, Jacob, Elias and Nicolas Bajgrowicz.

A family gathering will be planned in the future.
