Also Known as Gumma, Goom and Mim, Marie was a graduate of St. Michael's High School in Union City and was employed by Kurt Adler Holiday Decoration Co. as an office manager for over 30 years. Marie was known for her cooking and baking and beautiful blue eyes! She was also known to have a Manhattan...or 2, (as long as she already made the gravy for dinner!)
She was predeceased by her husband Frank Tercek, her grandson Jr Minervini, and her brothers Adolf, Victor and Cyril Kurz.
Marie leaves her loving family; daughter Debbie Minervini and son-in-law Alfred Minervini Sr., her son Greg Tercek Sr., grandsons Chris Minervini and his wife Cassie, Greg Tercek Jr., Jonathan Tercek, great grandkids Ryan, Will and Lila, her close friend and cousin Frank Hannan as well as her devoted and loving nieces and nephews.
