Obituary for Margaret Mraz

Margaret “Margie” Mraz, 89, of Burgettstown, passed away on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 in Weirton Geriatric Center. She was known by everyone as “Baba”, which means grandmother in Slovak.

Margie was born on February 22, 1930 in Carnegie, daughter of the late John and Mary Bak Sipos. Margie was a 1947 graduate of Scott Township High School, and married John Steve Mraz on June 23, 1956. They had two daughters, and lived in Burgettstown since 1958.

Margie was a homemaker, and John was a steelworker, but the whole family enjoyed the family farm in their spare time. They hosted frequent picnics with family and friends, and loved spending time outdoors.

Margie was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, the Christian Mothers organization, Burgettstown Senior Citizens, Cross Creek Valley Senior Citizens, and the RedHat Society.

She also enjoyed knitting, playing canasta, and doing ceramics with friends. Margie loved to cook and bake, and won several contests for her culinary talents. She was everyone’s Baba; kind, giving, and compassionate.

After 41 years of marriage, John passed away, and now Margie is the last of her immediate family. Preceding her in death were parents John and Mary, sister Sue Michalo, and brother Andy Sipos.

Surviving Margie are two daughters, Mary Beth (Terence) Bukovinsky of Avella, and Susan Marie Mraz of Framingham, Massachusetts; three grandchildren, Angela Marie Bukovinsky and her husband Charles Long of Burgettstown, Malissa Ann (Joseph) Baker of St. Petersburg, FL, and Paul John Bukovinsky II of Burgettstown; two great grandchildren, Lillian Marie May and Steve Terence Baker; and several nieces and nephews.

Friends and family will be received from 2-4pm and 6-8pm on Thursday, February 28, at the Jerome A. Stefkovich Funeral Home, Inc., 18 Campbell Street, Avella, PA 15312. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, March 1, 2019, in Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, 1109 Main Street, Burgettstown, PA 15021, with Rev. Zachary A. Galiyas officiating.

Burial services will be held in St. Michael cemetery in Avella, PA.
