ANNA SIEGEL, PORT JERVIS, NEW YORK

Anna Siegel of Port Jervis, NY died on March 18, 2016, peacefully in her sleep, eight days after her 94th birthday. The daughter of Rabbi Shlomo Iglicki and Rose Pakentreger Iglicki, Anna was born in Zdunska Wola, Poland on March 10, 1922.  

The youngest of six children, Anna was forced to flee her homeland as a teen, as Nazi soldiers invaded her town. When her father told her to run to save her life she had to leave her family behind, at her parents direction. Taking no clothing or food with her, she survived the most grueling of experiences in dark woods, cattle trains, a bitter cold Siberian work camp, illness, malnutrition and physical exhaustion, even after liberation.

While still recovering from these extremely severe years, Anna married Israel Rzezak (name changed to Siegel in the U.S.) on November 23, 1942. Their first born daughter, named Rose, died soon after her birth, and nearly all their family members perished during the war.  

After a long and difficult journey through Asia and Europe, Anna and Israel arrived in the United States on May 13, 1946 as refugees on the Marine Perch. The ship, while crowded with many ill passengers and little food, made a one-month journey from Bremen, Germany to New York City. There they were welcomed with open arms by Eleanor Roosevelt who greeted them at Ellis Island and handed them $20 each to start their lives in America.

Anna enjoyed her early childhood in Poland and her many years as an American citizen.  She enjoyed spending time with her many friends, neighbors, and family.   

Anna was an examiner/inspection clerk at H&M Knitting Mills and mother to three sons. She was married to Israel for 47 years before his death on January 30, 1990.  She is survived by her son Stanley and his wife Sharon of Port Jervis, her daughter-in-law Rachel of Beverly Hills her grandsons Brian and his wife Melissa of Barryville, Kevin and his wife Karen of Garnet Valley, PA, Elliott of Los Angeles, Joshua of Los Angeles, and Avi and his wife Keren of Hoboken, NJ.  She is also survived by her great-grandchildren, Emma, Braden, Johnny, Grace and Kate.

She was predeceased by her sons Marvin, in 1990, and Benjamin, in 2005.

Anna’s family extends their most sincere gratitude to her many friends and neighbors who visited her often and helped to make her final years peaceful.

Services will be private.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Knight Auchmoody Funeral Home, Port Jervis, NY. Burial will be in Temple Beth El Cemetery, Port Jervis, NY.

Memorial contributions may be made to Temple Beth El, 88 E. Main St., Port Jervis, NY 12771
