Who knows the Stasinowsky family from South Australia?
Who knows something about Jennie Freda (Fay) Stasinowsky?

Jennie Freda (Fay) Stasinowsky was born 1906 in Broken Hill, NSW, Australia.She was the fourth child in a South Australian family of nine. J. F Stasinwosky joined the Post Master General as a telephonist in 1925.
Miss Stasinowsky has served in the Adelaide and the country exchanges. She had been in Port Augusta for only three months of her year's term when she was recalled to prepare for her Darwin position.
In May 1941 J. F Stasinowsky and Eileen Carrig Mullen (her colleague, and my great-aunt) volunteered for duty at the Darwin Post Office as telephonists and were selected because of their efficiency.

Jennie Freda Stasinowsky, telephonist and Eileen Carrig Mullen, telephonist were killed on 19 February 1942 in the first air raid in Darwin together with eight other postal employees including Eileen Mullen's sister Jean Carrig Mullen.

There is also the book "Australia's Pearl Harbour" referring to Jennie Freda Stasinowsky and the Mullen sisters. It says about J.F. Stasinowsky, "Just before leaving she went to Morgan, on the River Murray, to say goodbye to her mother and father. She was in high spirit and excited at the prospect of a long trip across the continent."

This is what I found on the NSW Registry of Births and Marriages web-page:
NSW Registry of Births
1901 STASINOWSKY OLGA L
JOHANN G (father) KAREN T (mother) BROKEN HILL
1903 STASINOWSKY ALBERT H
GUSTAV J (father) CARRIE (mother) BROKEN HILL
1904 STASINOWSKY ALFRED O
GUSTAVE (father) CAREN (mother) BROKEN HILL
NSW Registry of Marriages
1898 RODEN PATRICK H STASINOWSKY BERTHA E BROKEN HILL
1900 STASINOWSKY GUSTAV THORGERSEN KAREN T BROKEN HILL

I am very interesting in hearing any other stories of Jennie Freda Stasinowsky. Jennie Freda and Eileen Mullen have been good friends. The "Southern Cross" published a picture in Feburary 1942 of them.
Thank you very much for your help! As I am researching the Mullen family from South Australia any advises are appreciated! X Mullen
