Judycki, Milena (23 March 1924 - 21 July 2009)  

Mrs. Milena Judycki of Portage passed away Tuesday morning, July 21, 2009.  She was born March 23, 1924, in Weyerhaeuser, WI, one of two daughters to Walter and Sophie (Gladys) Zajda.   

On November 22, 1947, she was united in marriage to Chester Judycki, and they ran a small grocery store in Lublin, WI.  They had two daughters and in the 50’s moved to South Haven, Michigan, and later Bridgman.  She and Chester then took their camper on the road and traveled the entire 48 contiguous states and later traveled to Alaska.  In 2000, Milena and Chester moved to Portage.  Milena spent many happy hours working in her flower gardens both in Bridgman and Portage.  She taught herself to sew, crochet, knit and quilt in addition to a variety of hobbies that she and Chester both enjoyed.  As an avid Cubs fan, during baseball season, Milena planned her time around the Chicago Cubs baseball schedule. 

Preceding her in death were her husband of 60 years, Chester; her parents; and sister, Frances.   

Surviving are two daughters: Joann Gerrish of Mattawan, and Linda Kaminski of Portage; and grandson, Thomas Gerrish of Royal Oak.  Also surviving are her sister-in-law, Harriet (Judycki) and Richard Wrobel, Sr. of Withee; and Alvina Judycki of Mixa, MI.
