RE: [TexasCzechs] obit: Mrs. Joe Roznovjak nee Dusek
I was hoping to tie her in as the daughter of Vincent & Anna (Silar) Dusek, but I don’t have enough info yet.
Her death certificate gives her first name as Annie, but it doesn't list a maiden name for her mother.

Does anyone know what her first name is? Also, this obit states that her parents are Vincent and Anna Dusek. Is her mother’s maiden name Silar?

Mrs. Roznovjak, respected lady of the Bila Hora community, wife of Mr. Joe Roznovjak, farmer, was attacked with locked bowels the past week end. Her condition became so critical she was hurried to a San Antonio hospital Sunday morning and operated on immediately, but it was too late. She lived about twenty-four hours after the operation. She was 53 years old.
Pallbearers were as follows: Messsrs. August Holubec, Raymond Holubec, Aug. Dusek, Emil Melnar, Frank Foyt and Vinc Melnar. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Horak, Lutheran minister from Caldwell.
Mrs. Roznovjak was born Feb. 2, 1872, at Cernovice, Moravia; came to Texas with her parents, Vincent and Anna Dusek, in 1881, at the age of 9 years. First settled at Nelsonville, in Austin county, then moved to Bila Hora in Lavaca county. In 1899 she was married to Mr. Jos. Roznovjak and with her husband settled at Svetin, in Lavaca county. In 1922 they moved to the County Line section (Allen's Quarters), where she lived up to the time of her death. She leaves to mourn her death her husband, Mr. Jos. Roznovjak, three sons, August, Emil and Adolf, and one daughter, Mrs. Emil Foyt of Bila hora.
The remains were brought home by the Hubbard Undertaking Company and laid to rest Tuesday. A large crowd of sympathizing relatives and friends witnessed the last sad rites.
Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to her bereaved ones.
