Micayla Medek Obituary

Micayla Medek loved a night out with her friends, and she was with a group of about 10 of them at the "Dark Knight Rises" premiere Friday, July 20, in Aurora, Colo.

Medek was "Cayla" to her family and friends. She was 23 years old and juggling classes at Aurora Community College with a job at a Subway sandwich shop, said her aunt Jenny Zakovich, 57, of South Milwaukee, Wis.

"She didn't know what she wanted to do," Zakovich said. "I think her plans were to finish community college and go into a better paying job — probably in the computer field."

An ardent Green Bay Packers fan, Medek, who lived in the Denver suburb of Westminster, would plan her schedule around watching Packers games with her sister and father.

"It was probably just like going to church every Sunday," Zakovich said.

Zakovich said she was planning to look for tickets to a Packers game so her brother could surprise Medek and her sister.

Medek was an independent-minded and sweet girl who rarely asked her family for anything, Zakovich said.

"She was one who wouldn't hurt anybody. She was a very loving person. This shouldn't have happened to somebody like her."
