  Hannah Oreckovsky and Joseph Oreckovsky were first cousins. He was the son of Samuel O., brother to Raphael O., Hannah's father. Hannah, correctly pronounced "Khannah", came to America at age 16, about 1887, with Israel Oreckovsky's (Bright) wife, Lena, and their son, Sol. She married Israel's brother, Joseph. The marriage was probably arranged. Hannah and Lena Krasnovsky Bazelon (Joseph's father's sister) were very dear friends. Even after Lena moved to Chicago, they would travel to visit with each other.
  "I loved her. She was a beautifuly lady." Fay felt very close to her grandmother, Hannah, who lived right up the hill from school. Fay would go from school to her Grandmother Hannah's for delicious hot lunches almost every day, "because I was just a scrawny little nothing". Also, after Fay would finish her job at Oreck's Department Store, she and Hannah would pack lunches and go to the Finnish bath in Duluth, where they would sit and talk in the steam room, then go to a private room where they would eat and smoke secretly. Hannah made Fay promise not to tell Hannah's daughter, Mary, that she smoked. "Don't tell Mary", she'd say. Hannah's husband, Joe, would also take them and "Uncle" there. He would wear a towel around him and would stroke Fay and the others with a pine bough to improve their circulation, "because I was such a frail kid." (Fay Oxman Ridley, 1977 and 1993) "Hannah was a wonderful baker. She was a stately and attractive, and loved beautiful clothes and good parties. She was very social. Every Sunday she and Joseph would have an 'open house'. Mary would play the piano, and the children would have a great time together. (Vallian Coll Averbook, 1993) "My one childhood image of her is passing her hands over the Sabbath candles as she blessed them, at Grandma and Grandpa Oxman's home in Duluth". (Len Traubman, 1994) "Hannah loved to play cards, especially with her sister, Auntie Sarah Zurovsky Polinsky." (Rene Oxman, 1994)
