Martha Hudek Obituary

Martha Josephine Hudek, a beacon of love and selflessness, passed away peacefully on March 17, 2024, in Cary, Illinois, at the age of 86. Born on March 10, 1938, in Chicago, Illinois, the cherished daughter of Vincenzo and Giovannarosa LaVecchia, both of whom preceded her in death, as did her beloved husband Tony Hudek, her sisters Mary (Robert) Lee and Margaret (Martin) Serro, and her brother Frankie (Frances) LaVecchia.

Martha leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion in her surviving family members. Her brother, Vito (Rita) LaVecchia, her son Joe Hudek, and her daughters LouAnn (Pat) Jenkinson and Jenny Hudek. Martha was the proud grandmother to Joey Hudek, Josh (Taylor) Hudek, and Jake (Jenna) Hudek, as well as Kayla Jenkison and Jeffrey Jenkinson. Her joy was multiplied with the arrival of her great-grandchildren, Jamison, Jillian, Charley, Frankie, and Oliver, who will grow up hearing stories of their remarkable great-grandmother. She was a loving Aunt to several nieces and nephews. 

Martha's life was filled with the simple pleasures of caring for those around her, both two-legged and four-legged. Her devotion to her family was unparalleled, and her capacity to give knew no bounds. Taz, her adored dog, was among the many recipients of her endless affection and care. 

As we bid farewell to Martha Josephine Hudek, we celebrate a life that was lived with purpose and grace. Her influence will continue to be felt through the many lives she touched with her warmth and generosity. Though she may have left this world, her spirit will remain a guiding light for her family and friends.

Martha's family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to all those who shared in her life and made her journey on this earth so meaningful. Her story does not end here; it lives on in the memories we all hold dear and in the acts of kindness we bestow upon others, inspired by the remarkable woman she was. Rest in peace, dear Martha, until we meet again.
