CANFIELD - Mary Osipchak Chick, formerly of Youngstown’s west side, passed away peacefully late Sunday morning, Aug. 19, 2018, at Windsor House in Canfield with her family by her side, just two days after her 96th birthday.

Mary was born Aug. 17, 1922, in Center Township, Pa., a daughter of the late John and Ann Sherbak Osipchak, and came to this area with her family as a child.

She attended Chaney High School and was a homemaker who also worked for Packard Electric, both in Warren and Austintown. She retired from the company at the age of 68 after 35 years of service.

Mary was a member of St. Michael Orthodox Church in Youngstown, and was very proud of her Carpatho-Russian heritage. A great cook and baker, she passed on her family traditions and values to her children and grandchildren, especially those involving Easter and Christmas, and she gave out her recipes for her delicious kolachi and Easter bread to anyone who asked.

Mary leaves two daughters and a son, Colleen (Dominic) Raco of Canfield, with whom she made her home, Cheryl Tubic of Boardman, and Anthony Chick of Palm Harbor, Fla.; seven grandchildren, Natalie (T.J.) Corcoran, Dominic Raco Jr., Collin Tubic, Amanda Chick, Audrey Chick, Aaron Chick, and Joseph Becker; 11 great-grandchildren, Aidan Corcoran, Ronan Corcoran, Caitlin Corcoran, Keelan Corcoran, Quinn Corcoran, Meghan Corcoran, Jacob Homel, Nathan Becker, Brody Becker, Griffin Becker, and Elliot Becker; a sister, Irene Kiraly of Youngstown; a brother, Edward (Nancy) Osipchak of Canfield; a sister-in-law, Donna Osipchak of Boardman; and many nieces and nephews.

Mary will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Her husband, Anthony Chick; sisters, Ann Beaumier, Helen Bura, and Elizabeth Schulze; and brothers, Raymond and John Osipchak, are deceased.

Family and friends may call from 5 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 22, at Kinnick Funeral Home, 477 N. Meridian Road.

Funeral services will begin at 10:15 a.m., Thursday, at the funeral home, and will continue at 11 a.m. at St. Michael Orthodox Church on Steel Street in Youngstown.

Committal services will follow at Green Haven Memorial Gardens.

Mary’s family thanks the staff and nurses with Windsor House and with Harbor Light Hospice, for the kindness shown and care given to Mary and her family during her illness.
