Marilou Csizmadia

March 18, 1951 ~ October 13, 2019 (age 68)


Marilou F. “Lulu” Csizmadia, 68, of Milford, beloved wife of Louis Csizmadia, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on October 13, 2019. She was born on March 18, 1951 in Bridgeport, CT to the late Mary (Siksay) and Francis Jiroudek.

Lulu and her husband Lou co-owned Up to Date Fish and Chip Restaurant in Bridgeport, for over 20 years. She also worked for over 35 years at ADP and was an active member of the Aqua Aerobics Swim Club of Milford.  

In addition to her husband, Lou, Lulu is survived by her children, Lisa (Robert Ludricks) Csizmadia and Carrie (David) Steinberg; her grandchildren, Perry and Pamela Steinberg; her sister and siblings-in-law, Margaret (Frederick) Stockman, and Diane (Michael) Ciaramella; and her niece and nephew, Suzanne Silvestro and Michael Ciaramella. In addition to her parents, Lulu was predeceased by her niece, Michele Guido, her dog, Beanie, and many cats.

Family and friends were Lulu’s passion and delight- as well as the Beatles.  She had a fairytale marriage to the love of her life Lou for over 47 years- it was a marriage out of the storybooks.  Her grandchildren adored her more than anything and referred to her as their “Mimi.”  She was the strongest, most positive, upbeat, beautiful person who never complained and always looked to the bright side of things- she was pure goodness and love.  She was worshipped by her daughters and her legacy will live on each and every day.
