Marjorie Elaine FedynaSeptember 15, 1930 ~ September 7, 2017 (age 86)
AUSTINTOWN - Marjorie Fedyna, 86, formerly of Kleber Avenue, passed away peacefully Thursday evening, Sept. 7, 2017, at Humility House following a long and fulfilling life.
Marjorie was born Sept. 15, 1930, in Youngstown, a daughter of the late Charles and Alice Williams Waldele. She was raised in Struthers, was a 1947 graduate of Struthers High School, and was a lifelong area resident.
After marrying her husband in 1952, she became a homemaker who dedicated the rest of her life to raising and caring for her family. Marjorie also worked for a short time in the Austintown School system.
Mrs. Fedyna was a member of Sts. Peter & Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Youngstown. Marjorie had also been a member of the Rebekah Lodge.
Music was an important part of Marjorie’s life. She sang for a while in various local groups, and found great comfort and joy when playing the piano. She had a soft spot in her heart for those in need - animals, children, and anyone who asked for her help; the greater the need, the more she was willing to help. A very positive person, Marjorie seldom used the word “no.” She will always be remembered as “an angel” to those she came in contact with and has left behind.
Marjorie is survived by her son, Stephen (Debra) Fedyna of Ellsworth Township; her daughter, Stacie (Tim) Pleger of Green Bay, Wisc.; six grandchildren, Alison, Kaitlyn, Andrea, Casey, Collin, and Chad; three great-grandchildren, Janessa, Abri, and Riann; and a brother, Thomas (Marge) Miller of Mission Viejo, Calif.
Her husband, Charles Fedyna, whom she married Nov. 15, 1952, passed away Feb. 24, 1999. A daughter, Marianne Sherwood, is also deceased.
Family and friends may call from 5 to 7 p.m., Monday, Sept. 11, at Kinnick Funeral Home, 477 North Meridian Road, Youngstown, where a prayer service will be held at 4:30 p.m.
Funeral services will take place at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 12, at the funeral home. Interment will follow at Sts. Peter & Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Cemetery in Youngstown.
Special thanks are extended to the staff at Humility House for the kindness shown and exceptional care given to Marjorie during her stay.
