A woman of many enjoyments, Mary especially enjoyed baking for family, sewing, and watching golf and football with her late husband. Above all, Mary’s greatest enjoyment in life was being surrounded by her loved ones, most especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Though her presence will be deeply missed, she will forever be remembered as a loving and dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.

In addition to her parents, John and Mary Konopka, and her husband, Paul, Mary was preceded in death by her brothers, Anthony, Phillip, and John Konopka; her sisters, Sophie Patterson, Caroline Rakos, Josephine Cegilka, and Nellie Zannetti.

Condolences

Barry, Diane, and family... so very sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. Hope you find some comfort in the beautiful memories during this most difficult time. RIP Mrs C. Suzanne Keller
Barry, Chris, and family, Chuchi Mary was a very special woman. Behind that straight forward, tell it like it is façade, beat a heart of gold. She always had some words of wisdom for me. Although I did not always agree, she made me stop and think. For that, I am grateful. She was so very proud of her family. It was always "My" Chrissy this and "My" Barry that. I will miss her, but she will forever be in my heart. Love you. Maryann
