Virgin Mary

Mary Theresa Chabak

June 16, 1925 ~ November 8, 2019 (age 94)


Mrs. Mary Chabak passed away on Friday, November 08, 2019. She was born in Pennsylvania on June 16, 1925 to immigrant parents, Rosie and George Bentz, from Austria and Yugoslavia.  She had two brothers, Rudy and Frank. Mary married Edward Chabak on February 11, 1950.

She is survived by two daughters and their families, Paula and husband Louis Hinds of Onley, VA and Pam Chabak and spouse Kathy Ortutay of St. Clairsville, Ohio. There are also several surviving grandchildren and their families, as well as many members of Mary’s extended family.

Mary was always happy while sewing and crafting. She worked as a seamstress in shirt factories in Dunellen, NJ and Reading, PA and as an injection mounding technician for Captive Plastics in New Jersey, for many years. She had a successful craft business making Christmas ornaments, which she was proud to share made more money than what she was paid at Captive. Over the last 18 years Mary did much charity work, sewing countless baby layettes and receiving blankets which she donated to Social Services in Atlanta, GA through St. Oliver’s Catholic Church and to the Nurse Family Partnership Eastern Shore District through St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church.

A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church on Monday, November 11, 2019 at 10:30 a.m., with Father Rogelio L. Abadono officiating. Interment will take place at a later date, in New Jersey, where Mary and her late husband, Edward, lived the greater part of their married life.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church, P.O. Box 860, Onley, VA.  23418.
