Obituary

STEFANIA "Stefanie" KOZERA, of Sterling Heights, age 87, January 9, 2020. Loving wife of the late Mitchell. Loving mother of Martha Pauline Huff (Lance), the late Michelle Christine, Mitchell John, and Mark David (Cheryl). Loving Grandma to Ryan Huff, Erin Huff, Stefanie Kozera, Jacob Kozera, Christine Huff, and great-granddaughter Morgan Huff.

Stefania was preceded in death by her parents Stefan and Apolonia (Mielnik) Flis.

Stefania was the consummate wife, mother and homemaker. Her skill as a home-cook, seamstress and family manager was self-made in every sense of the word. Her willingness and ability to beautifully comingle European and American cultures in her house made for a rich and fulfilling life and upbringing for her husband and family.

Born on February 4th,1932, in Horpin, Poland, Stefania lived in a modest turn of the century farming village prior to World War II. Early in life her family was absorbed, by force, into the German labor system during World War II. Stefania persevered as a youth, surviving several dangerous situations with her family. At one point in her formative years, she was separated from her parents and forced to live in a German orphanage. As events could often turn on a dime during those days, one chain of events had Stefania and her parents “adopted” by a kind family of German aristocracy. This gave Stefania a more nurturing environment to grow that included attending German schools during war-time and receiving several years of quality primary education courtesy of her adopted family.

After reaching her teens, Stefania made an objective of migrating to the United States with her mother and father. After several years of effort, following World War II, she negotiated a migration agreement with the German government, in her late teens, that would allow her and her parents safe passage to the United States. Unfortunately, between approval and the time of departure, her mother Apolonia passed away. Grieving but undeterred, she packed up her belongings, her father Stefan, and boarded a ship to America.

It was in America in 1951, while working as a seamstress at Hudson’s downtown, she first met her future husband Mitchell. “Stefcia” and her beloved “Mietek” courted and eventually married in 1954. Together they raised a successful loving family with beautiful children, grandchildren and even a great-granddaughter.

Stefania was a happy mother, wife and friend who, with husband Mitchell, would always open her home to those she loved and cared about with a bold smile and warm hospitality. She was the kindest of people and will be missed greatly by everyone she touched.

A memorial gathering will be held at Faulmann and Walsh Funeral home 32814 Utica Rd, Fraser, Saturday January 18, 2020, from 3pm till time of memorial service at 7pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the charity of choice in Stefania’s name. The family would like to express great gratitude to the care givers at My Doctor’s Inn Assisted Living, Macomb Physician’s Group and Grace Hospice for their invaluable support during her later years and last days.
