Danuta Mardyla, age 85, passed away on Wednesday, August 11, 2021 at Aurora Health Care surrounded by her grandchildren who gave comfort holding her hand for 3 hours along with her daughter and son-in-law.
Born in Bydgoszcz, Poland on December 18, 1935, she was the daughter of the late Franciszek and Monika (Slowinska) Buchholz. She graduated from Bydgoszcz High School and earned her Associates Degree as a Midwife.
She was a member of St. James Catholic Church.
Danuta was a midwife for 30 years. She enjoyed driving, shopping, traveling and gardening and enjoyed time with her family, grandchildren and friends. Most of all, Danuta would make phone calls to every family member that had a birthday and would say “this is for you” and she would sing Happy Birthday to them.
She leaves behind many joyful memories for all of us. Her love of life, her dreams for her children and her love of family as well as others who loved her.
