It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Marija “Mary” Viscek, in her 89th year, on January 23rd 2024 on a calm, quiet winter evening. Mary peacefully slipped into the hands of the Lord with her loving family by her side.


Beloved wife of Lado (d.2008) of 50 years. Loving mother to Lado Jr. (Linda) and Kathy. Cherished Grandma to Jennifer (Brandon), Charlene (Phillipe), and John (Katherine). Great-Grandma to Lincoln, Londyn and Remy. Predeceased by her parents Janez and Marija Zeleznik; brothers Tone, Franc and sister Toncka, brother-in-law Josef Viscek and great-niece Stefanie Viscek.

A dedicated member of Lipa Park and St. Mary of the Assumption Parish.


Mary will be missed by the Third Street gang and many other friends. She earned a seamstress trade in Slovenia. She was quick-witted. In her younger years, she was the life of the party; in her later years, Master of Word Search Puzzles.
