Mary Jane (Toy) Catlos, 92, of Gilpin Township, passed away on Thursday, March 10, 2022, at Indiana Regional Medical Center.
A daughter of the late Harry L. Toy and Marie B. (Klingensmith) Toy, she was born February 18, 1930 in Kelly Station, Armstrong County, PA.
Mary Jane graduated from Leechburg High School in 1948. She married her loving husband, Albert, in 1951. Mary Jane showed her love for her family by serving them “good, hot meals,” and always had a cookie plate and coffee at the ready when friends or neighbors stopped by. She was an excellent conversationalist and a good listener. Whether she had known you for life or for five minutes, she was interested in what you had to say. Her charming wit, willful independence, and curious nature were her most endearing qualities. Mary Jane loved God, her family, and the church. She served as president of the Altar Guild, as well as secretary-treasurer of the Abiding Memorial Fund for more years than anyone can remember. Mary Jane took great pride in the work she did for Forks Zion Lutheran Church.
Survivors include her two sons, Larry Catlos (Faye) of Indiana, PA, and James Catlos (Kay) of Gilpin Township; three grandchildren, Molly, Rose, Jesse Catlos (Andrea); two great-grandchildren, Maggie Catlos and Maxwell Catlos; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Albert Catlos in 1996; and a brother, Harry “Clyde” Toy.
Friends will be welcomed by her family from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. on Monday, March 14, 2022 at Clawson Funeral & Cremation Center, 170 Main St., Leechburg, 724-842-1051.
