“Mickey” MAKOFKA

"Mickey" MAKOFKA


1928 – 2016

She danced, she sang, she loved. The family of Minnie Ann “Mickey” Makofka of Red Deer would like to announce that on March 26, 2016 at the age of 87 years, she answered the call of the Angels who were looking for someone to fill a spot in their musical group. Even though dancing was her first love, she would never turn down the opportunity to help someone in need. She will likely bring cinnamon buns for all to enjoy. Mickey was born in Luscar, Alberta. Her teaching career started in Hoadley, Alberta where she met her husband, Charlie at a dance. After 38 years in the classroom she retired and became an avid traveler. In later years she enjoyed line dancing, volunteering, singing with the Ho-downers and spending time with her grandchildren. Left to celebrate her life are her son, Wesley (Janis) Makofka; two daughters, Kammi (Kelvin) Rosentreter and Sally (Dan) Quon; seven grandchildren, Tyler, Jessica, Kellen, Kody, Kacy, Jasmine and Santana; her sister Julie Howe as well as numerous nieces, nephews and family members. Mickey will be joining her husband of 43 years, Charles Makofka; her father Nicolas Blyzniuk; her mother Annie Blyzniuk (Elaniuk); brother, Bill Blyzniuk, and a son, Grant Makofka. The family would like to thank Dr. Myberg for his compassion. A special thank you to Russell and the amazing staff at Villa Marie for their excellent care and for making the last few years of Mickey’s life enjoyable, she felt loved and appreciated. A Celebration of Mickey’s life has been held. For those wishing to do so, memorial donations in Mickey’s honor may be directed to the Alzheimer’s Society, 10531 – Kingsway Ave. Edmonton AB T5H 4K1. Condolences to Mickey’s family may be emailed to meaningfulmemorials@yahoo.ca
