Mary (Weber) Menovich lived her 103 years with extraordinary strength, grit, and kindness. She passed away peacefully on February 20, 2020 at the Katzman Family Center For Living in Chelsea, MA.

Mary was born on January 15, 1917 in St. Louis, MO. As a young child, she moved with her family to Malden, MA. It was in Malden that she met her soon-to-be husband, Bernie, when he crashed a Halloween party she was attending. They were married on January 18, 1939. Soon after, Mary and Bernie briefly moved to Washington D.C. before returning to Malden to start a family. Education was extremely important to Mary. Though she was forced to drop out of school during the Depression (eventually earning her GED), she ensured her four children had access to great educations. Mary was the model of a strong work ethic, taking great pride in her career at Lady Grace and retiring young (at the age of 86!)

Mary and Bernie were happily married for 68 years. They dedicated their time to Congregation Agudas Achim-Ezrath Israel in Malden, weekly bowling, and of course, their large circle of family and friends. They last lived together in Revere.

Mary was a fierce defender of family and the most spirited dancer at any wedding. As her family grew over the years through marriages and births, she always marveled at “how well everyone just fits together.” This was a direct testament to the foundation of love, respect, and family that she instilled in each of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents Esther and Max; husband, Bernard; brother, Benjamin Weber and his wife Yetta; sister, Hilda Levine and her husband Al; and sons-in-law, Barry Black and Ralph Esterman. She is survived by a mighty family including her children: Francine Black; Claire Gillan and her husband Gary; Beverly Esterman; Michael Menovich and his wife Marcia; eight grandchildren and their spouses: Arthur Black; Eric and Erin Black; Edward Gillan and Catherine Radzewich; Robert Gillan; Alissa and Kyle Snowden; Michelle and Andrew Becker; Matthew Esterman and Jenna Saner; and Kate and Phil Bissonnette; and eleven great-grandchildren as well as many nieces, nephews, and close family friends.

The funeral service will be held at 1:00pm on Sunday, February 23 at Goldman Funeral Home (74 Ferry Street, Malden with a private burial to follow. Condolence calls may be made at the home of Michael & Marcia Menovich Sunday 3-8PM, Monday & Tuesday 1-4PM and 6-8PM. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the Katzman Family Center For Living (17 Lafayette Ave, Chelsea) whose staff took loving care of Mary in her final years.

Private Condolence

Dear Family and Friends of Mrs. Menovich,
We are deeply saddened by Mary's passing at CJNH. This place, the first floor, will never be the same without Babi keeping me/us company in the evening and at night. I will forever miss her for her wisdom, kindness and good word that she had for everybody here. We were happy and laughed together, we danced (she was really good at it!) and we were sad at times. For good and bad we were part of her life journey and we are proud of it! I/we will remember Mrs. Menovich for I/we really grew fond of her. I know, leaving us on Earth was her biggest wish but it still does not make it any easier. I hope, you all know how special Mary (Babi) was to us! My deepest condolences to you all. We will also miss you coming here!
Thank you for the treats you sent us and as we munch on the chocolate we are talking about Mary, remembering and sharing stories and laughs that we had with her (including her love for chocolate)!
With Kind Regards Milada and our first floor staff
