Mary Suprick, 103, of Ransom Twp., entered into eternal rest on Saturday morning at Allied Skilled Nursing Center, where she was a resident for the past year.
Born at the family home on April 14, 1916, she was the daughter of the late George Sr. and Verna Labanich Suprick. Mary was a cook at the Ransom Convalescent Home for many years and retired in 1977 from Clarks Summit State Hospital, where she worked for 30 years. She was a life long and devoted parishioner of St. George’s Orthodox Church, Taylor, where she would be seen in the kitchen wearing her white apron. A lady of great faith, she was very active with the altar society. Mary was never idle, if she was not cooking, baking, planting a garden, canning from the fruits of her labor, she could be found praying and crocheting quietly in her chair. If you visited the family farm you always left with a treat bag and many cherished stories. Mary endured many things during her life, but faith and family were first and foremost. She drove until the age of 100 and would pick her sister up each week driving approx. twenty-eight miles.
Surviving is a sister, Madeline Cook, Harveys Lake; two nephews, George P. II and wife, Sharon, and Mark A. Sr and companion, Tina Traver, Clarks Summit, all who were her caregivers the past few years and additional nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.
She was preceded in death by two brothers, George Jr. and Michael and three sisters, Verna Franko, Anna Rita Lewis and Helen Conaghan.
