Marie Elizabeth O’Mahoney, Panufnik’s first wife. An exceptionally beautiful Irish woman whom the composer met in 1950 in Obory near Warsaw as the writer Adolf Rudnicki’s newly wed wife, and whom he married one year later. The marriage was not successful from the very beginning, and although Scarlett helped her husband get out of Poland in 1954, the couple divorced five years later.
