Jessie died in October 1918 when her only child, Boleslaw "Bill' Bankowski, Jr. was ten months old.

Bill Sr. went back to Poland when his son was four years old where he lived until the war broke out in Europe. Then Bill Jr. returned to America and after he earned enough at his job bought a cemetery plot in St. Stanislaus R.C. Cemetery and had his mothers remains moved there.
