Mary Elizabeth Mazur slipped the surly bonds of Earth on Oct. 19, 2014, in Pueblo, Colo. Born in Bridgeport, Conn. on April 3, 1921, to Magdalena and Jacob Tarendek , Mary inherited her mother's artistic nature and she passed that gift on to her children and granddaughters. Mary was a homemaker and, in partnership with her husband Alexander, raised two children. She was the former President of the Bridgeport Art League, an avid golfer and will always be remembered for her vibrant smile, sparkling blue eyes and quick wit. Mary was predeceased by her parents; her sister and brother-in-law, Rose and Henry Cofek; her husband, Alexander; her son, John Alexander Mazur; and numerous friends. Mary is survived by her daughter, Jayne Alexandra Mazur and her fiancé John Michael Barnosky; granddaughters, Sarah Elizabeth Mazur and Mary Elizabeth 'M.E.' Mazur; daughter-in-law, Barbara Glynn Mazur; and Mary's dear friend, Ben Crum. Per Mary's request there will be no viewing and a private memorial service will be held at a later date. The family extends its thanks and gratitude to the men and women at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center and Villa Pueblo who cared for Mary over these many years. Special thanks to Drs. Kern Low and Steve Simerville for their kindness and skill. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in memory of Mary to the Sisters of Charity Patient Assistance Fund, c/o St. Mary-Corwin Health Foundation, 1008 Minnequa Ave., Pueblo, CO 81004.

  1. Our sincere condolences to Mary’s family. Mary was a true lady and a joy to know. She was always so thoughtful and considerate of others, so gracious.
    Our family enjoyed having her at many gatherings through these past years, and she will be missed. I am so glad that Dad (Ben Crum) had her friendship and he will miss her as well. I went to visit Mary in the Villa a few weeks ago, and she smile her pretty smile and I hope she recognized who I was.
