Obituary of Franks wife Anna published in Manawatu Standard 29 Nov 1941.

OBITUARY

MRS ANNA LUCINSKY

Yet another of the early pioneers of the Manawatu district in the person of Mrs Anna Lucinsky, widow of Mr Francis Lucinsky, has passed away. Born in Prague 97 years ago, Mrs Lucinsky met and married her husband in that city and then left from Hamburg in the Jane Douglas for New Zealand. The couple took up their residence at Oroua Downs and farmed there for a number of years before going to Kelvin Grove. Here Mr and Mrs Lucinsky carved for themselves a home and farm out of the virgin bush. After a short time there the couple went to Rongotea, where once again they started off afresh, making a home for themselves out of the bush. Mrs Lucinsky proved a tower of strength to her husband in helping to mould the farm successfully. She aided him in the felling of the bush and erecting fences around the property. From here the family shifted to Himatangi, and later to Cheltenham. It was while Mr Lucinsky was residing there that he met his death in an accident which occurred at the Princess Street railway crossing, Palmerston North, being knocked over by a train and killed. Mrs Lucinsky is survived by five daughters, Mesdames R. Christensen (Cheltenham), G. Rait (Wellington), J. Gunn (Hamilton), W. Burne (Palmerston North) and A. G. Gloyn (Feilding), and one son, Mr F. Lucinsky (Palmerston North). There are also 37 grandchildren and 17 greatgrandchildren. One daughter, Mrs C. Fowler, predeceased her mother ten years ago.
