ObituaryShare A Memory

On January 27th, 2018 our sweet Aunt Mary Theresa Ficek, left her earthly home to be with her Lord and her dear husband, Vince, in heaven. She passed away at home in her warm cozy bed just as she prayed she would. She was born in Dickinson, North Dakota, on March 23, 1920, to Edward and Theresa Kacalek.

Aunt Mary was a grade school teacher and helped Uncle Vince with their berry farm in her early years in Woodburn, Oregon. She was an excellent cook and loved to help me with dinner and canning summer goodies. She loved gardening. She was famous for her 12-page hand written letters to her family and friends she had met over her 97 years. She also loved to go with us on our fishing trips and so enjoyed being around our grandchildren. They all brought her so much joy, she would light up when they came to spend the night and visit.
Mary Theresa Ficek is survived by many family members and friends. She loved her special angels that kept in touch with her. Her days were extra blessed when she would receive visits, calls, and letters from you. Special thanks to Susan & Ray Ficek (Dickinson, ND), Edith Meduna (Dickinson, ND), her 3rd grade student, Darlene Norton (Federal, WA), and my friend, Karen Gallagher Craig, who helped us with her care in her last days. Also thank you to my husband Earl, Frankie, Ashli, Kaydi, and Brooklyn Meyerriecks, you all gave her enough love and hugs to fill her heart forever. Also, her grandson, Sean Zastoupil (Keizer, OR), for his love & support.
Aunt Mary will be cremated and laid to rest next to her loving husband, Vince Ficek, in Woodburn, Oregon, at St Luke’s Cemetery.
