Mary Josephine Minerich         March 25, 1926 to March 11, 2019


Mary Josephine Minerich (aka Baloh) passed away peacefully March 11, 2019.  She was 92 – just two weeks from her 93rd birthday.  Mary was born in Cleveland, Ohio and had a twin sister, Dorothy. She married Tom Minerich November 29, 1947 and moved to California in 1959 where they raised their three children, Paul Thomas, Laura Ann and Anita Marie.  Mary had a loving family including Paul’s wife Lisa, Laura’s husband Danny Rice and Anita’s husband Harry Hertzberg.  She was blessed with 7 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.  Mary loved flowers, was a wonderful cook who hosted many family dinners and a lover of travel; visiting many countries around the world.  She loved to take pictures and recorded our family memories in over 120 photo albums! She was well read in art history as well.  Both Mary and her late husband Tom had a strong faith in God and knew that Jesus was with her always.  Mary had a ready smile for everyone and was one of the kindest people you could meet.  She never complained, had a positive attitude and was always there for her family and friends.  Mary will be greatly missed.
