Herminia G. Muzikar , 93 , died May 12, 2020 at Condell Memorial Hospital in Libertyville IL.

Herminia was born Oct. 18, 1926 in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, to Ignacio Gonzalez .
Sadly, her mother died giving birth and little is known of her . Herminia was raised by her loving grandparents Pedro and Balbina Gonzalez .

After graduating Barrio High School in Arecibo, she gave birth to her only child, a daughter, Aida . Some years later, as a single parent in search of a better life, Herminia moved with her daughter to Chicago, Il. In 1951 to a small garden apartment on 3714 n Fremont St. in the shadow of Wrigley field . She soon started working for Bally’s manufacturing, making pinball machines and slot machines. She was a dedicated and hard working employee and worked with Bally’s until her retirement in 1985. It was at Bally’s she would meet the love of her life and future husband, Otto Muzikar. Despite different ethnicities there love blossomed. Then in 1961, Herminia, a devoted Catholic , and Otto , a devoted Cubs fan , were married at Holy Name Cathedral and remained married until Ottos death in 1994 .

She was a active member of St. Edward Catholic Church where she made, life long, friends and supported various charities. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and dog lover. She passed that love of animals to her daughter and grandsons . She had a passion for gardening, enjoyed fishing and was always a friendly and respectful neighbor. She was the personification of determination, hard work, loyalty, generosity and unconditional love .

Herminia is survived by her daughter, Aida Montijo and spouse Augie Montijo, grandsons Kirk , Kevin and Kenneth Montijo and their spouses along with her 9 great grandchildren. She will be forever missed and her memory is a blessing to all that had the pleasure of knowing her . Rest in eternal piece with your beloved Otto .
