This morning, on March 19th, the wife of the late Director Ignacy Jaworowski, passed away at the age of 96 in Cracow. A mother of two daughters, Dorota and Agnieszka, and a graduate of the Jagiellonian University, Faculty of Agriculture.

She was associated with Michałów Stud since 1952, when she came here for the first time to visit her uncle, Franciszek Mieszkowski, the then manager of Michałów Stud.

In Michałów she met Ignacy Jaworowski, who she wed in 1954.

Maria Jaworowska lived in Michałów for many years since the death of her husband in 2004. Then she moved to Cracow, from which she often came to Michałów to visit, residing at the Podlesie farm.

For many years she worked as an education inspector, visiting numerous agricultural schools in the Świętokrzyskie voivodeship.

During Mr. Jaworowski's life their household was very hospitable. It was visited by plenty of the stud's guests. In those days, when food supply was an everyday problem, business guests were received in their private flat - from US governors, Hollywood directors and actors, members of the Pahlawi Family, the Shah of Persia, famous singers and sportsmen to breeders and enthusiasts of various breeds from Poland. The "male boss" always introduced a cordial atmosphere and the "female boss" (as I always called Maria) served delicious food made from vegetables from her own garden and poultry of her own breeding.

The death of Maria Jaworowska is an end to a chapter of a wonderful Michałów saga. I had the enormous luck to have been able to take part in creating it.

Dear Maria, may you rest in peace in your beloved Michałów.
