MARYLAND – Alfreda W. Jamrosz, a World War II Polish Resistance courier who served in the Home Army and later survived a Nazi work camp, died May 8th, 2016 of a lung disease at her Inner Harbor home. She was 90.
She was born Alfreda Wienckowska in Lodz, Poland. Her father was a fabric manufacturer and her mother worked for him. She moved with her parents to Warsaw, where she completed high school and studied for a year in an underground college because the German occupiers forbade Polish schooling. She joined the resistance movement when she was 17.
Alfreda and her husband Stanislaw Jamrosz were founders of the Polish Heritage Society of Maryland, and the National Katyn Memorial in Harbor East.
A Memorial Mass was offered at Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church, 400 S. Chester St.
In addition to her son Ivo Jamrosz, survivors include a daughter, Anna Maria Jamrosz Davis of Santa Fe, NM and a grandson. Her husband of 55 years died in 2002.
