Mina Kozak Obituary

Mina Flores Kozak found peace surrounded by her family on the morning of March 5, 2024. She passed away after an eight year fierce and courageous battle with cancer.  She was born in Pampanga, Philippines on May 20, 1969 to Rosalina and (late) Antonio Flores and was the second oldest of five siblings. After attending Holy Angel University in Angeles City, Philippines she moved to Taiwan where she met her husband Henry Kozak.  Soon after they got married and moved to the United States she found her passion for working with children. She became a core part of the Fort Meadow community where she worked for the past 23 years and never failed to inspire staff and students alike.  You could always find her with a smile and a positive attitude that was undeniably contagious.  Her spirit and joy will be missed tremendously by all who were fortunate enough to know her.

She is survived by her husband of 33 years Henry, her daughter Maileen Kozak and was expecting her first granddaughter this July for which she was incredibly excited.  She also leaves behind beloved sisters, brothers, cousins, nieces, nephews and pets who are spread between the Philippines, Massachusetts and Florida.  She fought unremittingly to live life to the fullest despite her condition and was motivated by her loving friends, family and her “Squad”.

Mina loved to travel and to be surrounded by nature whether that be on the beaches of Baler, the summit of Mount Tom or her own garden, she never failed to take time to appreciate the beauty in life. Spending time with those she loved was her favorite thing to do hiking, walking, cooking, playing Scrabble or just sitting in the sun talking; her love and laughter were infectious and her lust for life was a true guiding light.

Calling hours for Mina will be held on Thursday March 14, 2024 from 4:00-7:00 at Firtion Adams Funeral home, 76 Broad Street, Westfield.  Her funeral will be held at 12:00 Friday March 15, 2024 at Saint Joseph’s Church, 73 Main Street, Westfield with the burial to follow at Saint Joseph’s Cemetery on Southampton Road in Westfield.  In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Saint Jude Children’s Hospital. www.firtionadams.com
