Obituary

Mellie A. Kozakiewicz (nee Masker) 84, of Mahwah, NJ, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on May 31, 2022. She was born to Jennie Van de Mark and Thomas Masker in Suffern, NY. After graduating high school in Tuxedo, NY, Mellie and Joe met working together at Artwire in Suffern. Mellie and Joe were married in 1956 at Immaculate Heart of Mary and raised their family in Mahwah, NJ.

Mellie is predeceased by her parents, sister Jean Roefaro, and brothers Loten and Alfred Masker. She is survived by her loving husband, Joseph Kozakiewicz, their four children: Thomas Kozakiewicz (Karen), Joseph Kozakiewicz (Shannon), Melanie Garvie (Glenn) and Suzy Godding (Eric), and ten grandchildren: Karen, Allyson, Tommy, Shane, Aidan, Joey, Emily, Jamie, Alex and Jennie, and two great-grandchildren: Scarlet and Amy.

Mellie loved all animals especially birds, she enjoyed gardening – her favorite flowers were daffodils and daisies although she loved them all, she was an avid reader, loved crossword puzzles and was always happy for a scratch off ticket.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in memory of Mellie. https://www.stjude.org/donate/donate-to-st-jude.html
