Mary E. Statzell

Pennsville – Mary Elizabeth Statzell, age 72 of Pennsville, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by members of her loving family, Tuesday evening, December 25, 2018. She had been in declining health for quite some time, especially in the last month.

Born in Vineland and raised in Malaga to the late Walter and Mary (Adams) Pelikan, Mary graduated from Delsea Regional High School, Class of 1965.

After graduating, Mary worked at an interesting variety of places over the years, first at the Vineland State School as an aide, assisting in the care of patients for several years. She then worked at a sewing factory in Minotola, and then went back to helping others, working for many years at Lakeside Manor in Elmer as a manager. Prior to her retirement, she worked as a dispatcher for Millville Yellow Cab Company for ten years, and retired.

Mary was a wonderful homemaker and greatly enjoyed crafting. She also loved watching home improvement shows and all of the soap operas on Channel 6. But most of all, Mary cherished the time that she was able to share with her family.

Mary will be sadly missed by her two daughters, Mary E. Johnson of Newfield and Christine M. Ramos of Levittown, PA; one sister Joann Rice of Millville; four grandchildren, James M. McClaskey, Jr., Alicia N. Johnson, Christine E. Ramos, and Chastity M. Ramos; one niece; and several nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by one brother Walter Benjamin Pelikan.

A Memorial Service for Mary will be held on Thursday, January 3, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. in the Christy Funeral Home, 11 W. Broad Street, Millville. Family and friends will be received between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. in the funeral home. Burial will be in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Millville.
