Mary Martha Perozich, 89, formerly a lifelong resident of Weirton, died in the Embrace Hospice Facility of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, due to complications of a fall. Mary was born in Weirton, WV, to John and Martha (Goban) Garan on August 27, 1931. Mary was a lifelong resident of Weirton, and attended Weir High School. She was very proud of her Slovak heritage, making her famous pierogies and Paska bread for Easter. The love Mary had for her Catholic faith revealed itself every day. She had a great devotion to our Blessed Mother, reciting the Rosary in the morning and again in the evening. She spent much of her time volunteering at St. Joseph the Worker Church, decorating the sanctuary for the holidays, preparing goods for the numerous bake sales and bazaars, and being an integral part of the Christian Mother’s and Knight’s of Columbus 3734 Auxiliary. Mary was quite the Notre Dame fan. It was a tradition for her and her husband Mario to make their annual Fall trip to South Bend, Indiana, to watch their beloved Fightin’ Irish. But nothing compared to the enjoyment Mary had in her role as wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She adored her grandchildren and was always happy when her great-grandchildren would face time her and say, “BaBa!” In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husbands, Mario Perozich and Louis Perozich, brothers William Pasternick, Mike, Joe and John Garan, sisters Ann Gerbo and Helen Vincej, and stepfather, George Lisich. Left to cherish Mary’s memory is her brother George Garan, daughter Patricia (Dale) Gurgiolo, grandchildren Matthew (Kelly) Gurgiolo, Heather (Justin) Thom, and Katelyn Gurgiolo, great-grandchildren Kaden and Jaxon Gurgiolo, and countless nieces and nephews. Visitation will be 2-4 and 6-8 pm Friday at the Greco-Hertnick Funeral Home, 3219 Main Street, Weirton.
