Obituary for Mary Karlovits

Mary Karlovits
Of Palatine

Mary Karlovits was born on November 1, 1925 in Hungary to Victor and Helen (nee Stier) Magdics. She died Friday, September 20, 2019 at her home in Palatine surrounded by her loving family.

She was a parishioner of St. Edna’s Catholic Church in Arlington Heights.

Her interests and hobbies included cooking and baking for her friends and family. She was incredibly talented at crocheting and in her earlier years volunteered to make prayer shawls for people in the hospital. Throughout her life, she traveled to many interesting and wonderful places. A very important part of her life was her family. She enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. The story of her life and adventure to America was something her family and friends always found fascinating and teased her that she should have written it all in a book. Her experiences made her the strong, courageous, loving woman that everyone knew and adored. She will be dearly missed.

Mary is survived by her daughter Marianne (William) Zacharaus; her 5 grandchildren, Valerie, Michelle, Leslie, Gregory and Spencer; and her cherished great-grandchildren as well as her sister Dorothy Frueh.

She was preceded in death by her spouse of 36 years Ludwig Karlovits; her parents as well as her sons Leslie J. (Martha) Karlovits and Steven G. (Laura) Karlovits.
