Maria (Mika) Zawojski

Maria Zawojski 111319 onlineNovember 10, 2019 marks the birthday of our beloved mother, Maria (Mika) Zawojski, who passed away November 7, 2017, just short of her 92nd birthday. Born in Poland and emigrating to the United States after WWII, she and her husband, Walter, and their children lived in Los Altos for many years. In 2011, Mika moved to Auburn, California to live with her daughter and husband. Mika was amazingly vital, out-going, and had an incredible sense of humor. She was the model of love, generosity and beauty – inside and out – and she remains in our hearts, her family, as we honor her memory with an everlasting smile. She leaves a lasting legacy to her family: her son, Chris (Camille); daughter, Karen (Bud); grandchildren Jessica (Nate), Emily (Joey), Alana (Greg), Katrina and Erik; and great grandchildren Wyatt, Hazel, Walter, Charlie, Isabella, James and Luca. We love you up to the sky and higher!
