Mary Rose Homitz
April 29, 1933 – October 17, 2020
Mary (Manico) Homitz, age 87, passed away on October 17, 2020 with her daughter Theresa Stehle and son-in-law, Tony by her side. She was the youngest in her family and was preceded in death by her parents, Rose and Giacomo Manico and two brothers, Samuel and Joseph.
Mary’s husband Peter passed away in July and now together they can celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary.
Mary was born, raised, and spent most of her life in Troy, New York. Mary and her late husband, Peter moved to Brunswick to be near their daughter and son-in-law in 2011. They both loved relaxing on Theresa and Tony’s screened porch, babysitting their fur-grandbabies and watching the birds.
Mary will be remembered as a caring and compassionate woman who always wanted to make sure you were well fed. While her daughter was young, Mary was a stay at home mom who volunteered at church and was a Girl Scout Leader and later cooked for the priests in her parish, St. Francis de Sales and Catholic Central High School, both in Troy. Mary also loved cooking for her daughter’s friends and was noted for her great homemade pizza!
There will be a Funeral Mass at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church on Saturday, October 31, 2020 at 11:00AM and family and friends are welcome to attend with consideration of wearing a mask and social distancing.
