Anastasia “Nancy” Pykus, 96, of Jefferson, passed away on Sunday, December 12, 2021, (her husband’s birthday), at Jefferson Healthcare Center. Nancy was born March 18, 1925, in Khashchiv, Ukraine and as a young teenager, she moved to Germany to find work. There, she met her husband, Nicolaus Pykus and on November 24, 1946, they became husband and wife. In 1949 on Christmas Eve, Nicolaus and Nancy immigrated to the United States where they started their new life together.
