Margaret A. (Prebish) Przybys
January 10, 1934 ~ February 8, 2024 (age 90) 90 Years Old
MARGARET PRZYBYS (nee Prebish), age 90. Beloved wife of the late Andrew F.; devoted mother of Ann Marie Przybys-Donegan, Andrea, and John (Jacki); cherished grandmother of Luke, Samantha, and Andrew; caring sister of George (Rose)(both deceased), and John (Eileen-deceased); also survived by nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, especially Jace Piatak.
While it is impossible to convey every beautiful and selfless thing our mother did during her life, we would like to share a little information about this amazing woman many of you knew as Marge. She grew up in a small town in PA, the daughter of a coal miner and homemaker. After high school she worked at St. Francis University in Loretto PA honing her skills as a secretary. Marge had the amazing talent of shorthand which served her well throughout her career. She held the title of beauty contest winner in a pageant during her days at the University. After marrying Andy (Mugg’s) she moved to the Cleveland area settling on the near west side. After saving enough money the couple moved to Brook Park in 1958 and there she remained until her passing. Faith was a guiding principle, Marge, was a long-time parishioner of St. Hedwig’s Catholic Church. She raised her three children to be mindful and devoted to the faith and traditions of the Polish – Slovenian people.
Once her children were old enough, she went back to work and became the secretary of the Brook Park Police Chief, Captain, and Detective Bureau. Marge engaged inmany activities on behalf of her children from PTA mother to Boy Scout leader and volunteer, you name it Marge did it. Anyone who needed help, encouragement, a warm meal, or money she was there for them. To this day manyof her children’s friends have expressed thankfulness for her kindness and generosity. Marge made everything special, vacations, birthdays, holidays, she could take an ordinary Sunday and make it seem like a celebration. Marge was an amazing cook, chef level for certain. She was unbelievably talented in whatever she put her mind to – reupholstering, sewing, ceramics, professional cake decorating, and floral arranging. Marge eventually became owner / operator of not just flowers, inc. a florist shop and boutique. At one point she ran two shops and garnered many faithful clients, at one point she was responsible for holiday decorating at a major hotel in downtown Cleveland. Once her grandchildren were born, she retired and devoted her remaining years helping guide them in faith and traditions all the while creating beautiful memories that will last their lifetime. To say she will be missed is indeed an understatement.
