I spotted an obituary of a 102-year-old woman, Victoria Alice (Buskis) Houston. whose parents were Anna Klemovich and Adam (probably Adomas) Buskis. She had siblings Anthony, Joseph, Edward and Anna.

In one part of the obit, it says Victoria made “Polish chicken and dumplings.” Yet there was no mention of her likely 100 percent Lithuanian heritage. This made me wonder if her descendants were/are not aware of their own Lithuanian heritage  (and “Lithuanian” chicken and dumplings!).

Does anyone know this family, or remember whether they were ever members of the Lithuanian-American Club (maybe back in the early 1990s)?

Victoria lived at Heritage Health for more than 10 years, and her funeral mass was at St. Cabrini on Aug. 1.  Here’s her obituary:
