Alice “Mary” Vargyas, age 92, passed away on Thursday, April 4, surrounded by her loving family.
Born on November 4, 1926 to the late Henry and Alice (Jennings) Gomoll in Supply, Okla., her name should have been Mary Alice. The doctor who delivered her, however, switched the names and her legal name became Alice Mary. She attended the former Libbey High School and during the Depression she worked to help with the finances of her family. She also took on the responsibility of her younger sister, Shirley, tending to her as she worked as a waitress. While working at Doehler Jarvis, Mary met her husband Julius, who introduced himself as Julius Caesar (which was not his real name). Mary and Julius were married in 1945. She enjoyed her family, traveling, boating, gambling trips with her sisters and bowling and was always ready to go wherever anyone wanted to go. Mary was a member of the Libbey Glass Golden Emblems, Jeep Retirees and Cooley Canal Ladies Auxiliary.
She is survived by her sons, Ronald (Kathy) and John (Debbie); daughters, Darlene (Larry) Paul, Mary Ann (Bill) Keller and Linda (Jeff) Barlage; sister, Shirley Babcock; sister-in-law, Irene Goodwin; brother-in-law, Andy Vargyas; 17 grandchildren; and 30 great-grandchildren with one on the way. Mary was predeceased by her parents; husband of 60 years, Julius; son, Gary; great-grandchildren, Jake and James Blazevich and Logan Barlage; and brothers, Henry, Raymond and Arthur Gomoll.
The family would like to thank all of the loving and caring staff at The Lakes of Monclova and Ohio Living Hospice of Toledo, especially Lolita Cutter “The Lady,” who all showed tender care and love to Mary.
Friends and family were received on April 10 at Newcomer-SW Chapel at 4752 Heatherdowns Blvd. in Toledo, where the funeral service will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 11, followed by burial in Ottawa Hills Memorial Park. The family suggests memorial donations to The Sight Center of Northwest Ohio, 1002 Garden Lake Pkwy., Toledo, OH 43614.
