Mildred A. Martyka

August 11, 1926July 15, 2021

Mildred Ann Martyka, 94, a former longtime resident of Broward County, passed away Thursday, July 15, 2021, in Florala AL, at a long-term care facility, just over the border from Paxton, FL where she lived with her daughter Cynthia and Michael. Mildred was born on August 11, 1926, in Chicago, IL. Where she married and started her family. Later, in 1965 she and her family moved to Pompano Beach, Florida.

Her husband, Casimer A. Martyka, and grandson Cole Merton precede her in death.

She is survived by her children, Judy and Thomas Hopcraft, Cynthia and Michael Korleski, James and Linda Martyka, Marilee and Joel Densmore; grandchildren, Nicole Cavaleo, Jason Merton, Ashley Densmore, Aimee Bickley, Robbie Densmore, Michael Hopcraft, and Christopher Korleski; and ten great-grandchildren.

We celebrate her life, the life of a strong and loving wife and mother, full of care and service. Raising her children and grandchildren while caring for her husband, all with grace and compassion. A life filled with laughter and faith, “Millie” always had a smile to share and a kind word. A love of dancing that saw her take many a turn across the dance floor, either at the Elks or Moose Lodge. Her greatest passion was always her family. She hosted every holiday in grand tradition and made dishes from her heritage, with love by hand, Pierogies and Kolackies by the bushel. Please join us in celebrating the amazing woman she was.

Visitation will be held at 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 27, 2021 at Kraeer Funeral Home, 200 West Copans Road, Pompano Beach, FL 33064. Burial will be at Forest Lawn Cemetery, to follow viewing.
