September 30, 1955 - August 27, 2021
On August 27, 2021 we lost our mom, grandma and wife Lyudmila Staneva. She was taken too soon and too suddenly at the age of 65. Lyudmila was born and raised in Bulgaria and proudly carried a Balkan spirit and a passionate heart. She moved to the United States to help raise her grandchildren and dedicated every day to her family and beloved babies. She made Washington, DC her home for many years until 6 months ago, when she relocated to Florida with the rest of the family. Living near the beach was a lifelong dream for Lyudmila, so it’s only fitting that her final resting place will be in Palm Harbor. Anyone who knew Lyudmila was aware that she never went unnoticed. She was confident, unafraid to speak her mind, fiercely devoted to her family, and someone who believed in living each day to the fullest. She had a degree in philosophy, so there was also no sense trying to argue with her. Lyudmila was blessed with a great love story. At the age of 24 she met a young boy on a business trip and after a 2-week romance they both decided to be each other’s forever. Their marriage was a partnership and a friendship for 41 years and could have gone on for 40 more if she wasn’t taken so soon. Lyudmila had only one daughter, her pride and joy. She also had two grandchildren, whom she practically raised from day one, so she could help her daughter balance a career, a family, and meaningful friendships. Her selfless devotion to her grandchildren was admired by all. To say that Lyudmila left a huge void is quite an understatement. She is survived by husband Mitko, daughter Milena, son-in-law William, and her two grandchildren Mia and Ivan. Lyudmila will be laid to rest on September 1, 2021 at 12 pm at Curlew Hills Memorial Park. May her soul rest in peace.
