Mary M. Karcz
Mary Magdaline Karcz went to be with our Lord on October 6, 2013 with family at her side. She was born on July 29, 1916 in Mammoth, PA to the late Anna & Andrew Payonk.
She married her partner of 62 years, Stanley Joseph Karcz Sr., living in Elmwood Park, NJ until he passed away in 2004. She was a loving and devoted wife and mother to her 3 children
Following her husband's death in 2004, she moved permanently to Melbourne Beach to live with her daughter. She loved Florida, being with her family, and especially loved their pet beagle Marcy.
She is survived by her children, son Stanley Karcz Jr. (Barbara) of Kissimmee, FL; daughters Bonita (Bonnie) Payne (Larry) of Melbourne Beach, FL, and Maryann Fenn (Russ) of Elmwood Park, NJ.; sister Genevieve Krull; brothers Paul Payonk & Stanley Payonk; 4 grandchildren; 2 great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews as well as many wonderful relatives, friends and neighbors.
