Mary Virginia (Zak) Pedee 95 of Toledo passed away on May 2, 2019 at Sunset House.  Mary was the youngest of three children of Frances and Stanley Zak. As a young girl, Mary learned to play the piano by ear, never learning to read music. She graduated from Whitney High School at 16 and went on to work in the Records Department at the Sears and Roebuck store in downtown Toledo. She met her future husband Larry in 1944 and was married in 1945 when he returned from WWII. She raised two children as a stay-at-home mom and seamstress. She was president of the St. Jude Altar and Rosary Society.
    After her children grew up she worked for the AAA as a bus tour guide for 20 years. Retirement brought her to the Helen Hunt Retirement Center where she ran the Second Hand Shop for many years. After her husband died, Mary moved to Sunset House Assisted Living in 2013. Residents and guests will miss Mary's daily concerts on the baby grand piano.
    Mary was preceded in death by her husband Larry, brother Ted Zak and sister Ester Janiszewski. She will be missed by her daughter Lou Ann (Paul) Hinkelman, son Bill (Margaret) Pedee, 6 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.
    Mary's family would like to thank the nurses and staff at Sunset House for the loving care and dedication, treating her like family.
    Family and friends may visit Monday, May 6, 2019 at 9:00am before 10:00am Mass at Christ the King Church 4100 Harvest Lane, Toledo. Burial will take place at Resurrection Cemetery Toledo, Ohio.

Bill, Lou Ann,

Your mom is a gem. She has a lovely and bubbling personality. She delighted and amazed me as a young girl at St. Jude's when she'd sit down to the piano in the old cafeteria and play at the festival's chicken dinners. Always had a smile and a kind word for all. Thoughts of her still bring a smile to me. May her memories be eternal.
Mary Ellen (Szalkowski) Zielinski, Martinez, GA St. Jude Class of '63
