Obituary of Mary Pintek

Mary Rezsonya Pintek, age 86, of Monroe, formerly of Fairfield, devoted wife to the late Louie Pintek, Sr., entered into the arms of the Lord on August 23, 2019, with her family by her side.

Mary will be lovingly remembered by her children, Louie Pintek, Jr., of Monroe, Gary Pintek and his partner Lori James, of Port Saint Lucie, FL, Kathleen Vincent and her husband Bradley, of Monroe; her cherished grandchildren, Michael Pintek, Jr., of Wallingford, Joseph Pintek, of NYC, Elise, Andrew, and Evan Vincent, all of Monroe; several nieces, nephews, cousins & many friends. In addition to her beloved husband Louie, she was predeceased by her youngest son, Michael (Mick) Pintek, Sr.

The loving daughter of Joseph and Theresa (Gaspar) Rezsonya and devoted niece to Agnes and Grace Gaspar, Mary was born and raised in the West End of Bridgeport. Mary attended St. Stephen's School, graduating as valedictorian for the Class of 1947. She went on to attend St. John's Commercial High School, obtaining mastery in secretarial skills. Mary was extremely proud of her academic accomplishments. She began her working career as a teller in People's Bank, as a salesperson in Reads Department Store, both in downtown Bridgeport and then as a bookkeeper for Sodexo Catering at Fairfield University. She was a longtime resident of Fairfield and moved to Monroe upon her retirement. 

While her children were attending St. Emery's School, she established and curated the school library, volunteered as the librarian and would occasionally assume the role of substitute teacher. As she had been during her own years of schooling, she was very close to the nuns who taught at the school, whom she highly respected and loved.

A devout Catholic and a proud Slovenian, Mary was a dedicated parishioner of Holy Cross Church. She loved to sing and dance...often breaking into song upon hearing a few notes played and relished showing off her dance moves! She found such pleasure in attending events and getting into mischief with her dearest and lifelong friends Ettie and Helen...laughing all the time! She enjoyed classic movies and Alabama football, casino trips, dining out, sunbathing, shopping, riding in the occasional golf cart, reminiscing about the "old days" and all the wonderful Slovenian food cooked by her mother. Above all else, Mary loved spending time with her family, whom she loved dearly, especially her grandchildren. She gave all of precious self to her family and friends.

Mary's family would like to extend their profound appreciation to the wonderful, caring friends that enriched her life in innumerable ways... Camy, Liz, Rosemary, John, and Janet and to the exceptional care and compassion given to her each and every day by the 3C staff and residents at her most recent home, Newtown Rehabilitation... Maria, Sheema, Maggie, Sue, Melissa, Sean, Anthony, Barb, Kristen, Debbie, Linda, Kate, Kelly, Patty, Jim, Sharon, Marita & the many others who touched Mary's life. A special thank you to Sabine, who cared for Mary in her final months in her home and to Dr. Steven Kardos for his excellent care, tender reassurance, and charm.

Mary Rezsonya Pintek was incredibly cute, immensely charming & loved by everyone! And she'd tell you so. And we'd all agree.  

Calling hours will be held on Wednesday from 4-8 PM in the Lesko & Polke Funeral Home 1209 Post Road, in Fairfield Center. On Thursday, funeral services will begin at the funeral home for 9:30 AM and continue in Holy Cross Church for 10:30 AM. Her interment will follow in Lawncroft Cemetery.
