Florence D. Hominik
February 11, 1923 – August 1, 2019
Florence Dorothy (Shurna) Hominik, 96, of Clinton, passed away on August 1, 2019 at Middlesex Hospital. Florence was a loving wife to her late husband, Anthony Hominik, and mother to two sons and a daughter. She spent much of her life caring for them. Always reminding people that she was “proud to be a coal miner’s daughter” from the Scranton, Pa. hills, Florence moved to Bridgeport at 18 and resided there until moving to Clinton in 1986. She was active in local organizations such as the Estuary Counsel of Seniors and a devoted member of St. Mary’s Church of the Visitation, Clinton. She had a passion for baking and knitting, often sharing her creations with others to their and her own delight. Florence is predeceased by grandson, Paul Koterbay and her siblings, Fran Lutka; Sophie Lutka, Josephine Shurna, Anthony Shurna, Leonard Shurna and Charlotte Shurna. She will be greatly missed by her children, Kenneth Hominik, wife Camille, of Madison, Marcia Koterbay, husband Robert, of Portsmouth, RI, and David Hominik, wife Sundra, of Henrico, VA. Florence took great joy spending time with her grandchildren, Debbie (McGinty), Todd, Jennifer (Hartan), and Michael Hominik; and Scott, Amy, and Daniel Koterbay; and her six great grandchildren. Florence also leaves behind many loving nephews and nieces along with many close friends.

One of my favorite memories is when she would make cinnamon toast for breakfast. My mom never made it so when we would visit and she made it for me, I was thrilled. I loved visiting for Labor Day weekend, I thought Bridgeport was so far away when I was young. I thought it was another vacation! Those were great times and great memories.
