Brunswick County
North Carolina, USA

Mary Magdalene Bereczki, one of ten known children, was born on 25 Jul 1912, in McDowll County, West Virginia to Istvan [Bereczki] Braskey and Rozalia Rakoczki Braskey, both of whom came to this country from Legyesbenya, Szerenc, Hungary shortly after the turn of the twentieth century. She married Louis Yuhasz in McDowell County, WV, and they became the proud parents of five wonderful children, John Joseph, Louis [Sonny], Barbara, Carolyn, and Steven. In the early 1950s, Mary, having had her father or brothers severely injured or killed as a result of mining accidents in WV, insisted that her husband leave the mines and find work elsewhere. In 1954, the Yuhasz family, including their Grandmother Rozalia Rakoczki Braskey, were in their new home at 302 E. Windsor Ave., Alexandria, VA. Louis found work with the City of Alexandria, and Mary at J.C. Penny's, where she could be seen every working day cheerfully helping customers until her retirement. She is most likely J.C. Penny's oldest and longest retiree. Mary later took residence with her daughter Barbara and son-in-law Richard Hearn, and they moved to Fredericksburg, VA, and subsequently to Sunset Beach, NC. On 25 May 2012, just short of her 100th birthday, she died in North Carolina. She is survived by her devoted and loving daughters Barbara and husband Richard Hearn, Carolyn and husband Tony Carano, and surviving son, Steven Yuhasz and wife Janice, and nine grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren, three great grandchildren, and other grand nieces and grand nephews. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Louis in 1994, sons Louis in 2001, and John Joseph in 1938, her parents, and sisters and brothers. She was the last surviving child of Istvan and Rozalia Braskey. The photo was taken by her loving grandson, Louis Yuhasz.
