Danette Janice Mielak

September 9, 1958July 30, 2018

On July 30th, 2018 we all lost a piece of our hearts with the passing of Danette J. Mielak to Stage 4 Cancer. Danette is survived by her mother, Shirley Becker; daughter Cynthia Anderson and son-in-law Joe Anderson; daughter Wendy Mielak and son-in-life Alfredo Silva; daughter Amanda Kruegel and son-in-law Jacob Kruegel; and Crystal Britton who was just as much as her daughter as she was her Niece. Grandchildren Kahlil Jones; Nikolas Mielak; Sabrina Anderson; Alexander Mielak; Malik Britton; Damien Anderson and an abundance of family and friends that loved her fiercely. A Celebration of Life is being planned for Sunday, September 9th, 2018; which would have been her 60th birthday. Her final resting place will be at the home she grew up in and lived most of her life in, residing next to her husband, Timothy Mielak, who previously lost his battle with cancer years earlier. Danette was beloved by all and will be missed by all that knew her. Danette was a loving daughter, sister, cousin, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother and friend; and always tried her best at being a good mother and even a better grandmother. She always wanted to be a mother. She spent many of her former years devoted to her family and children. She was always there for her children, grandchildren and all their friends. Making them part of the family. A second mom to a lot of them. She had a heart of gold and looked out for her friends and people in need even when she was in need herself. She was never selfish, and she would make sure the kids were taken care of before herself. She was a fighter until the end of her life. Danette loved cheesy horror movies, listening to 70's music (which she spent many of her last weeks with us listening to over and over again), coloring, watching shows about nature, ghosts, bigfoot, aliens, and food. Her favorite holiday was Halloween. She loved watching the Hallmark channel and would even get Joe and Sabrina involved in watching those cheesy movies! Some of our best memories will be from our annual trips to Disneyland and other fun places that she enjoyed doing as a family. Cancer took her from this Earth, but she will always remain in our hearts and memories. Rest in peace pain free.

Many memories can't pin point one. I remember my son hanging out with this beautiful family. Danette giving him rides. Don't know where my son would be if it wasnt for all this great people in his life. We have a picture of Danette at Disneyland laughing with her arms way high having a blast with the kids. RIP sweet lady. Thank you for always being there. My condolences to everyone. Hugs

I recall your smile,
Your warm hellos,
With all your pain
And discomfort...
You never complained
But kept on going forward...
I know you care
From up above
For the children
You shepherd night after night
My chance to meet you,
I hold so dear...
Working with you
For the time we did,
Your passion for care
Of the youth showed.
You will be missed,
But you are remembered.
Pray for us all,
That the work you did,
Will continue on
Through each of us.
God bless your soul
God bless your family...
Thank you for your time
Shared with us.

I thought about something I did as a kid the other day...then I thought I will ask my mom. Then it sunk back in yet again that you are no longer here. I love you always. I keep having moments where I need to remind myself that you are not physically here. I just cry here and there out of nowhere. I will always remember your smile and your laugh. I loved you from the inside and your heart is the first heart I ever heard beating. Nothing will ever be the same and I just have to keep moving now and not forget all my time with you <3

I just wanted to take a moment to say how much i miss you. I had a moment yesterday again when I realized i wouldn't get to see you anymore. Hear your laugh, see your smile, hold your hand, kiss you and hug you.

Eric came home from work and said the same thing hit him on his drive home.

We love you still and we know we can keep saying that to you.

Dear Auntie, I love and miss you. Thank you for all that you have done for me. Whether it was a ‘I am proud of you’ or a kick in the rear :) you were always there. You loved me like one of your own and never treated me any different. You loved Kahlil and happily took care of him with open arms. Heaven gained an angel by taking ours away. As much as it hurts I know you will be watching over us and will make your presence known. Rest In Peace. Love you always

I cried when the angels wrapped their arms around you and carried you away. I wish there were visiting hours in heaven. I wish I could still hug and kiss you. I still cry today. you are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure. I'm going to miss movie nights. And fighting over the tv. I Will miss holding your hand and most of all I'm going to miss you
