Obituary for Mary Andrade

Mary (Worhach) Andrade, 86, of 230 East Seventh Street, Mount Carmel, passed away on Saturday, April 25, 2020, at Mountain View Nursing and Rehab Center, Coal Township, with her husband by her side. She died of natural causes after a long, noble battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Born in Ranshaw on September 8, 1933, she was a daughter of the late Michael and Mary (Kwasnoski) Worhach.

Mary was a 1951 graduate of the former Coal Township High School.

On June 14, 1952, she married Antonio “Tony” Andrade in the former Saint Ignatius Church, Centralia.

Mary was a member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish and its Altar and Rosary Societies, Mount Carmel. She was a former member of Saint Ignatius Church, Centralia, and Transfiguration Church, Shamokin.

Mary’s life was marked by strength, commitment, and a strong faith. In her younger days she was Captain of the Girls Varsity Basketball Team at Coal Township High School. She enjoyed music, especially polkas, and watching basketball and baseball. In her later years she was a loyal fan of Duke Men’s Basketball and the New York Yankees, especially Derek Jeter. Mary enjoyed cooking and baking. Her lasagna was a family favorite and her peanut butter fudge was a favorite at church picnics. She loved making Easter Eggs and baking Christmas cookies. Mary worked in local garment factories and retail stores. Her grand dogs knew that she had a biscuit in her pocket.

Mary is survived by her husband of 67 years, Tony Andrade. She was a proud Mother of Antonio Andrade of Duncannon, Diane Andrade and her spouse Peter Stello of Elysburg, and John Andrade and his wife Betty Lou of Camp Hill. Infant twins, Edward and Marguerite, died at birth. She is survived by loving cousins, nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death, in addition to her parents, were three brothers, Michael, Myron and Daniel Worhach, and three sisters, Olga Poponiak, Pearl Pichola, and Jean Worhach.
