Mary E Mazurek

March 11, 2022



Ms. Mary E. Mazurek, 71, died Friday, March 11, 2022, in the Overlook Medical Center in Summit, New Jersey.

Mary, the daughter of Helen Bekasz Mazurek and the late Edmund S. Mazurek, was born in Jersey City, New Jersey.  Her family moved to Linden, New Jersey when she was quite young and Mary went through the Linden school system, graduating from Linden High School.  She continued living in Linden up until the time of her death.

Mary had a long career as a secretary for various companies in our area and she joined the ranks of the retired folks about ten years ago.

She enjoyed the solitude of being in her home and doing what she wanted to do, whenever she wanted to do it.  The term “homebody” suited Mary quite well.  She was an avid reader, mostly focusing on her romance novels and music was a great part of her world, including the rock music of the 1970’s and most importantly – The Beatles! Ever the animal lover, you would always find Mary surrounded by her fluffy cats.

Predeceased by her father, Edmond S. Mazurek in 2013, Mary is survived by her mother Helen Bekasz Mazurek; her son, Michael Breunig and his wife, Jillian; her brother Richard E. Mazurek; her two sisters, Carolyn K. Mazurek and Joyce Runfolo; and her two adoring grandchildren, Jonathan Breunig and Zachary Breunig. 

Mary is and always was, simply “Mary”.  She was who she wanted to be, and she lived her life accordingly.  She was loved for her individuality and in return, Mary cherished those in her circle. She will certainly be deeply missed, but Mary will never be forgotten.

Respecting Mary’s wishes, her funeral services are private.
