My father's mother, Maria Drobyazko, maiden name - Lebova. She was born around 1867 in the town of Lyubich. The photo was taken in 1906 in Kiev. (she was not Jewish) My grandfather's wife, Maria Lebova, my grandmother, also came from a family of Russian noblemen. Having received a wonderful education, she provided the same for her two sons. Having no financial needs in her life, my grandmother spent all her life working as a teacher in various schools, particularly in Kiev. She was a modern, emancipated woman who wanted to benefit people with her labor. My grandparents were Russian Orthodox, but they welcomed the Soviet power nevertheless and were quite loyal to it.
