Maria Marsalek, age 90 of Lebanon, NJ, died on December 10, 2022 at the Hunterdon Medical Center in Flemington, NJ.
Born in Vienna, Austria she emigrated with her husband, Franz to Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1958. They waited there for five years before they were able to emigrate to the United States. After living in Scotch Plains for a short time, they moved to Lebanon over 50 years ago. For a number of years, they were snowbirds and spent many enjoyable winters in Venice, FL.
Maria was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was a wonderful cook, and her greatest pleasure was hosting, and spending time with her family. In their younger years, Maria and her husband were fortunate to do a great deal of traveling; visiting such places as Japan, Hawaii, the Canary Islands and Mallorca Africa to name a few.
She was predeceased by her son, Michael in 2014 and her husband, Franz in 2020.
She is survived by her devoted daughter and son-in-law, Sylvia and Gregg Pohorely as well as her two cherished grandchildren, Heather and Tyler Pohorely.
There will be a private graveside service at Rural Hill Cemetery.
