She passed into Eternal Life surrounded by the presence of her family. Born in Springfield, MA May 19, 1925, she was the daughter of the late Wojciech (Albert) and Katarzyna (Iwaniec) Gazda Zastepa.

Hi Rodney, this is Gail Colburn, Tillie Colburn's daughter. Not sure if you are still checking this site. I'm relocating to AZ and just found a piece of paper ,clearing out, with Mary's name and phone number on it, so decided to look on the internet. I'm so sorry about the loss of your Mom, 4 months after you both were at Tillies' wake. Tillie and I were both so glad to have gone to Mary's 90th birthday party at the Monte Carlo, the last event that Tillie was able to attend. I wish you and your family all the best, Gail
