A funeral mass was offered Jan. 9 at Evangelismos Greek Orthodox Church, Jersey City, for Mary Parmagos of Jersey City. She passed away at home surrounded by her family on Jan. 5. Mary was born in Antissa, Mytilene, Greece, and moved to Jersey City shortly after her marriage to her husband, Peter in April 1960. The family settled into the Evangelismos Greek Orthodox Church Community where they were surrounded by wonderful friends. Peter Parmagos was a key member of the Alps Restaurant family on Bergen Avenue while Mary raised their children. Mary was a homemaker who pursued all things creative with a passion. She loved her family and expressed that love while pursuing her creativity, showering her family with her cooking, baking, crocheting, sewing, dress making and decorating. Though Alzheimer’s diminished her memory over the last 10 years, it never diminished her generous, kind-hearted and spirit.

She is survived by her husband, Peter Parmagos; son Kleamthes “Klem” Parmagos and his fiance’ Aida; daughter Efy Parmagos and her husband Patrick McCarthy, JCPD; her sister, Antonia and grandchildren, Melissa and Jessica McCarthy and Maria and Cristina Parmagos. She was predeceased by her sisters Panogiota and Vasiliki. Services arranged by the McLaughlin Funeral Home, Jersey City.
