WADDINGTON – Margaret Bocskor, 96, widow of Andor Bocskor, Sr. and longtime resident of McGinnis Road, peacefully passed away Friday evening, October 11, 2019 at St. Joseph’s Home in Ogdensburg, where she had been a resident since 2015.

Margaret was born July 3, 1923 in Massena, the daughter of the late Laszlo and Barbara (Gabri) Kormanyos. She attended Massena schools graduating in 1941. Two months later on August 9, 1941, she married the love of her life, Andor Bocskor at St. Mary’s Catholic Church with Father Bellamy, officiating. He predeceased her on January 16, 2013.

Margaret was a homemaker who provided a loving home for her family. She later worked for a time at Ames Department Store and Levine’s in Massena. She and her late husband were former members of the St. Lawrence County Rock Club, which allowed them to travel all over the country collecting rocks. For many years, they attended many local craft shows showcasing their rock and jewelry craft. She was a lifelong communicant of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and loved to sing. Margaret will be missed by all of her family. Her kitchen was the gathering point for those who visited. She will be sorely missed but her spirit, her happy heart, recipes, and love for each of them endures.

Margaret is survived by her children, Andor Bocskor, Jr. of Waddington and his companion, Shirley Lajoie; Barbara Orobona of Clayton and her husband, Joe; John Bocskor of Henderson, Nevada; and Steve Bocskor of Millersville, Maryland; and his wife, Kathy. Margaret was Grandma Nice, Mama-Nagy-Nagymama to 13 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by a daughter-in-law, So’o in September 2019; her brothers, Seve, Joe, John, and George Kormanyos; and sisters, Julia Kormanyos, Elizabeth Duprey, and Helen Dart.

Friends may call at the Donaldson Funeral Home, Massena on Wednesday 6-9:00 PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Thursday 11:00 AM at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Burial will follow in Calvary Cemetery, Massena.

Memorial contributions may be made in her memory to St. Joseph’s Home, 950 Linden Ave, Ogdensburg, NY 13669. The family greatly appreciates the love and care that was given to Margaret during her stay there.

I am so very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. You are all in my thoughts. No matter when or how we lose a parent, our hearts are heavy when we have to say goodbye. My childhood memories always include your parent’s house on Somerset. Whenever we would visit, we were greeted with the unforgettable aromas from your Mother’s kitchen. Her love for family and friends was always spoken through her amazing cooking. Her memory may have faded in recent years, but I hope you are comforted in the days ahead when you reflect on what a loving Mother she was and your own memories of happier times.

My deepest sympathies to your entire family, for not only Mrs. Bocskor’s death but also the recent passing of So’o. Wishing you strength and peace.

Julie (Ferency) Matson

Margaret was such a kind loving Christian woman. I still treasure and use her recipes.
She had a grand life! My condolences to the entire Bocskor family.

To all the members of Margaret Kormanyos Bocskor's family I extend my sincere condolences. Margaret, my second cousin, a Hungarian girl, as am I, was such a beautiful sweet and friendly woman. I remember the occasion when she and Andy came to my parents' home (Theresa and George Gabri) to invite them to their wedding. This "personal" invitation was in place of sending out a written invitation. I thought they were such a handsome couple. Later on, I was privileged to buy a set of their gemstone jewelry, a necklace and matching earrings, at one of their shows. I shall treasure it. My wish for all of you is that you embrace all of the beautiful memories your parents brought to you to help sustain you in the coming years. God bless you. Elsie Gabri Scruggs
