Obituary

Maria (Marta) Royko

AGE: 67 •

My beloved Mother, only 67, passed peacefully at home in my arms on May 16th, 2012 after a dreadful battle with Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer.

She was born in Cluj, Romania and came to America in 1969 to pursue a better life. She was a self-proclaimed workaholic, but also enjoyed the beach, her rose garden, dancing, music, cooking and baking.

My Mother was also an active member of the Hungarian American Athletic Club and of the Magyar Reformed Church; both in New Brunswick. She volunteered for fundraisers and other events for both organizations.

She is survived by her daughter, Gabriella and husband, Karoly Royko.

There will be a Memorial Service on Saturday, June 9th at 11am at the Magyar Reformed Church in New Brunswick, on 179 Somerset Street.
