OROSZ MarionPosted: December 22nd, 2012
MARION HELEN OROSZ of Lethbridge, beloved wife of the late Stephen Orosz, passed away peacefully after a lengthy illness on Tuesday, December 18th, 2012 at the age of 78 years.
Marion started her career by becoming a Telephone Agent/Operator. She then attended Beauty School becoming a hairdresser, and operated her own salon for a while. She continued hairstyling through her entire life keeping up-to-date on her skills for family and friends. She was a self-taught artist enjoying herself immensely while painting mainly scenery pictures with oil paints. She also was a self-taught seamstress, sewing anything from pajamas to a wedding gown and many bridesmaid dresses in between. Mom was up for any challenge another which included being a self-taught butcher tackling and packaging a side of beef and pork like a professional. She took pleasure in baking Hungarian pastries for special occasions and grew her own vegetables to freshly harvest along with the love she put into cooking many delicious meals for her family. Another favourite of hers was watching movie musicals and singing as loudly as she could. The family loved many pets from pigeons, rabbits, birds, many canines, and last but not least a female feline named Khepri who watched her every gentle move intently. She was a gracious selfless person who cared so very much for others and truly loved being called everyone’s Mom.
Marion was predeceased by her parents Karl and Maria Lang Sr., sister-in-law Cleone Lang, sister-in-law Emma Lengyel and brother-in-law Lesley Lengyel.
She is survived by her son Gregory of Lethbridge and daughter Catherine of Calgary, her brother Karl Lang Jr. of Lethbridge, sister Rosie Kacsinko (Frank) of Lethbridge, sister-in-law Mary Orosz of Lethbridge, as well as nieces and nephews and their families.
A Private Family Service will be held at a later date.
