How Did We Do?

In loving memory of Minka Achtemijczuk born August 13, 1935 in Seattle, WA where she lived her whole life and passed away on June 28, 2017.

Minka is survived by her her two daughters, Andra Kunz of Scottsdale, AZ and Lisa Haak of Bothell, WA.
Also survived by her grandsons David Kunz, Jacob Kunz, Stefan Kunz, and Nathan Haak and Kenneth Haak, and her great grandson Kasey Kunz. She also has two surviving brothers Howard Atkins, and Danny Atkins both in California.

Minka was a loving and generous mother, who loved to celebrate all the holidays with quality and extravagance, often staying up all night wrapping gifts to wake up on Christmas morning to see a tree overflowing with dozens of presents getting all our hearts could imagine. She loved the Arts, Opera, ballet, various plays, and the symphony. She was very sophisticated and dressed in the latest fashion, loved gourmet cooking and good coffee. She taught her daughters, kindness, generosity, respect , cooking, sewing, dance, and above all to love.

In her early years she worked for the Bon Marche as a talented interior decorator and won awards for her beautiful ornate Christmas trees with her picture in the Seattle Times paper on many occasions. She had a great sense of humor, a lover of animals, and believe it truth and love. Her final wish was to be buried with her mother at Evergreen Washelli Cemetery in Seattle. She will be truly missed for her big caring heart, passion for life, beauty and love that she shared with all who she met throughout her life. Private memorial will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations for her burial can be sent to Minka's Memorial at https://www.gofundme.com/MinkaMemorial.
