I awould guess, more Rusyn than Russian. Salanco is also maybe a bit misspelled.

Subject: [Slovak-World] is this person Rusyn or Russian?
This appeared in my hometown newspaper today, and I wm wondering if
she is actually Rusyn? Can anyone tell from her parents' surnames,
or from her American hometown of Pinatz, PA?
thanks, Lynn (whose mother was a great friend of Mrs. Miller)
Anne Salanco Miller Weber
NAPLES, Fla. - Anne Weber, a former resident of Little Falls, died
January 13, 2003, in Naples, Fla. Anne was born on September 26,
1914, in the coal mining town of Pinatz, Pa., to Russian immigrants
Alexei and Parasca Salanco. She moved with her parents to a farm on
Osborne Hill in Herkimer, where she attended a nearby one-room school
house with neighboring Russian children. Anne graduated from Herkimer
High School and married Emil Miller of Little Falls in 1940. They
made their home on the Middleville Road in Little Falls and raised
two sons, David and Allen. Emil died in 1959, and Anne married Jacob
Weber of Herkimer in 1962. She then had subsequent residences in
Herkimer, Watertown and in Sarasota, Fla. After her second husband's
death in 1993, Anne moved to Naples, Fla. The eldest of eight
children, Anne was predeceased by her parents and one brother,
Nickolas, and is survived by her sisters, Mary Wiernicki (Mitchell)
and Helen Moulton; and brothers, Alex Salanco (Helen), Steve Salanco
(Rosemary), Dan Salanco (Helen) and Andrew Salanco (Betty). Also
surviving besides her two sons, David Miller of Santa Barbara,
Calif., and Allen Miller (Kathia) of Naples, Fla., are her
stepdaughter, Shirley Weber of New York City, her grandchildren,
David (Tami), Keith, Paula, Zachary (Rochelle) and Lynn Miller, and
two great-grandsons. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
