Marta Jolan Fekete of Southington, CT, age 68, passed away from natural causes at home on Wednesday April 6, 2016. Born in Debrecen, Hungary, on November 25, 1947, Marta and her family made the daring escape to the United States during the Hungarian Revolution in 1956. They made Los Angeles, California, their home for the next four decades. As a young woman, Marta was employed as a Registered Nurse at Glendale Memorial Hospital in Glendale, California. She loved her job and worked there for nearly 30 years before retiring and moving to Connecticut with her family in 2001.
In Connecticut, Marta filled her life with family and the close friendships she came to cherish so much.
Marta is survived by her sister-in-law Sharron Fekete (née Dickson), her nieces Dianna Fekete and Christina Fekete, her niece Erika Youmans (née Fekete) married to Brian J. Youmans, and her nephew Michael Fekete, married to Natasha Fekete (née Crowell.) She is also survived by her grand-nieces and grand-nephews.
Marta is pre-deceased by her father Karoly Fekete, her mother Jolan Fekete (née Nagy), and her brother Arpad Fekete.
A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, May 1, 2016 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm at the Polish League of American Veterans, 562 North Main St, Bristol, CT.
