Mary Bregovy

Death: Mar. 10, 1934

Mary Bregovy is known as "Resurrection Mary" - a ghost that haunts the Resurrection Cemetery in Justice, Illinois and is sometimes seen in the area.

Mary Bregovy was buried in her favorite orchid-colored dress and is believed to lie in an unmarked grave next to her parents Stefan (1885-1951) and Johanna Bregovy (1883-1945).

Another person believed to be "Resurrection Mary" is Ona Norkus. Lastly, another girl named Mary Miskowski could also be the ghost. She was a girl killed crossing the street on Halloween night 1930.

The story goes like this: Mary Bregovy, a young Czech girl, was killed in a car accident in 1934 while going home from a dance at the O'Henry Ballroom, now the Willowbrook Ballroom. Her ghost makes appearances all along the cemetery roads and at the Willowbrook Ballroom. She has been known to dance with men at the ballroom and ask them for a ride home only to disappear from their cars as they pass the cemetery. She been seen hitchhiking on the nearby roads by many creditable witnesses. A taxi cab driver saw a young girl walking one evening in 1979 and picked her up. The two of them were talking and driving but as the cab passed Resurrection Cemetery, the girl, (Mary), disappeared from the front seat of the cab.
