A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered 10 am Thursday at St. Christine's Catholic Church, preceded by closing prayers at 9:15 am at the Lane Family Funeral Homes Austintown Chapel for Marie (Buday) Gedra who passed away March 11, 2013 at the Hospice House in Poland. Marie was born August 16, 1937 in Youngstown, a daughter of John and Marie (Strednak) Buday. A lifelong Youngstown resident, she graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School and worked as an LPN in the neonatal unit of North Side Hospital. Marie was a devout Catholic and an active member of St. Brendan's Church for many years where she served on various committees including the Altar and Rosary Society, Social Concerns and the Prayer Chain. She was also blessed with a tremendous amount of spiritual support from Pastor Luigi Perez and the congregation of Mahoning United Methodist Church where her husband, Ramon, is a lifelong member. She enjoyed quilting and crafts, but will be best remembered as "Baba" by her eleven grandchildren, family and friends. She relished in celebrating every birthday and holiday with her incredible cooking and baking. She took particular joy in helping to organize large annual family reunions. She leaves her husband, Ramon "Butch" Gedra, whom she married July 1, 1961; two sons: David (Laura) Gedra of Fairfax Station, VA and Daniel Gedra of Belleville, MI; two daughters: Christine (David) Buzzacco of Canfield and Marie (Daniel) Dorazio of Green; grandchildren: David "Jake", Madeline, Stephen, Olivia, and Elizabeth Gedra, David, Danielle, Mario and Aniello Buzzacco, and Daniel and Nicholas Dorazio; two brothers: Robert and John Buday; two sisters: Doris Niles and Loretta Wiles; and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents and her brothers: Matthew, Frank, and Edwin Buday. The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at the Hospice House for their extraordinary care and compassion. Friends may call from 5 pm until 8 pm Wednesday at the Lane Family Funeral Homes Austintown Chapel.
