Mary F. (Minarcin) Knorek

April 17, 1925 ~ April 27, 2017 (age 92)

The Piano Brothers

Mary Frances Knorek, age 92, passed from this world to her heavenly father's kingdom on April 27, 2017 after a short but serious illness.  Of all the amazing women, Mary was always most loving and kind. Loved as wife, mother grandma and great-grandma, she was always God's devoted servant.  Born April 17, 1925, Mary was the youngest of eight Minarcin children.  She married Daniel F Knorek and raised two successful children: Daniel M. of Ponte Vedra, Florida and John L. of Kailua, Hawaii.  Mary's cooking and comfort to the many patrons of Danny's Cafe in Rossford are legendary.  A Grandma her young will always treasure, a friend remembered with fondest pleasure, a confident and counselor to all who sought her wisdom.  Mary joins her loving husband Dan and siblings Ellen, Martin, Anthony, Andrew, Joseph, John and Steve.  The Angels came to take her to be at peace with her Blessed Virgin Mary and our Lord, Jesus Christ. She is survived by her son Daniel M. Knorek and wife Cheryl, son John L. Knorek and wife Kim, grandchildren Amy Lynn Spooner and husband Shane, Daniel S. Knorek and wife Rebecca, John K. Knorek and wife Sarah Mebane and Beth Bonfiglio and husband Chad, great grandchildren Daniel J. Knorek, Drew Knorek and Bryce Spooner and long and loving caregiver Janice Burkhart.  Mary, without you something is missing.
