“My Life’s Journey from Ukraine to Maine” is a memoir of Dycio’s experiences as told to Martha Stevens-David. As Dycio states in the book’s foreword: “I still speak English with a slight Ukrainian accent, and the flavor of my accent and choice of words here in my memoir will show this. I hope you like my story.”

Dycio, 91, was born in Ukraine and survived the brutal occupation under the regimes of Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union and Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany. Despite the hardships and disruptions she experienced, including time in a Nazi labor camp, Dycio managed to complete her medical education in post-war Germany and then emigrated to the United States with her husband, the late George Dycio, M.D., who also practiced medicine in the Lewiston-Auburn area.
