In the early morning of Friday, November 23rd Mary Hetyey died peacefully at the age of 80 in her beloved home on Altadena Court in Mississauga. Mary (Marika) née Moor was the devoted wife of more than 50 years to the late Leslie Hetyey. Mary was the loving mother of sons John Varga and Peter Hetyey and daughter in law Stephanie (Wall) Hetyey. Mary leaves behind her devoted grandchildren Ella and Ava Hetyey, Christopher, Alexandra and Sean Varga.
Mary was dedicated to family. At the age of 18, she bravely left her family in Hungary: her mother Maria (Moor), late father Istvan, sister Iren (Moor) Szita and brothers Janos Moor and Konrad Moor to build a better life in Canada. She bravely pursued her dreams and built an incredible life here in Canada where she was an integral part of her community. She was brave, smart, funny, incredibly loving and she gave everything of herself for those she loved. Her spirit will live on in the hearts of her family including her beloved nieces and nephews and their families : Maria (Hugi) and Jozsef Horvath, the late Lajos and Kati Szita, Zita and Ferenc Borzsei, Gabriella and Csaba Abri, Tomas and Henrietta (Hani) Moor and Gabor and Balazs and Korneila Moor. Mary’s spirit and joie de vivre were only matched by her generosity and courage. Her passing leaves a hole in the world that won’t be filled.
