Mary is survived by her sister, Jean (the late Ray) Page; sisters-in-law, Janis Jencon and Barbara Jenco; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Preceded in death by her beloved husband of 65 years, Anton C. Krasovec (2009); parents, Andrew and Mary Jenco; siblings, Andrew Jenco, Margaret (Leo) Bordeaux, Lawrence Jenco, Joseph Jencon, Stephen (Adeline) Jenco and Lorraine (Larry) Pomykala-Brown.
Mary was employed by Abbott Lab for 37 years. She was a member of the Women of The Moose Chapter #792. Mary was a fabulous woman who lived her life to the fullest. She was physically able to make every minute of her 94 years count and was kayaking with her family just two years ago. She found great joy in traveling, visiting all 50 states and 23 different countries. Mary was a fiercely strong and fearlessly independent woman who will be truly missed.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Mary’s niece, Cheryl Colson and great-niece, Tammy Colson for the wonderful care they have provided to her.
