Mary was born on January 10, 1932 in Cardiff, PA and passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on August 5, 2020. She graduated in 1950 from Blacklick Valley High School in Nanty-Glo, PA. She raised her three children in both Cleveland and Florida. Mary loved the sun and being by the water. Her and her children spent many of their Sundays at the beach. She adored a good time, getting dressed up and going out dancing. Mary also liked playing the slots at the casinos and spent her 80th birthday in Las Vegas. Being with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren gave Mary the most enjoyment in life. She truly cherished cooking with them and passed down her Hungarian recipes so that they could carry on the tradition. Mary had a sharp mind and was always working on a puzzle or reading. She was always laughing and had a very funny “Puruczky” wit about her. She will be remembered most as a woman who lived for her family. Mary will be forever missed.
