Mary Catherine Holko, 96, of Cortland, OH, joined the angels in heaven on April 14, 2018, at Trumbull Memorial Hospital. She was born August 23, 1921, in Warren, OH, a daughter of the late John and Mary (Kushar) Zakrajsek. On August 26, 1950, she married the love of her life, Frank Holko.

Mary was a graduate of Warren G. Harding class of 1941. After raising her two boys she worked at the Flange Department at Ohio Lamp General Electric for 16 years.

Mary was a long time member of First Church of God in Newton Falls. She loved her flower beds at her home and tending her garden. Mary was a great baker and was known for her kolache. She always had a positive attitude but also was a little ornery when she wanted to be. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family.

Left to cherish her memory is her husband of 67 years, Frank Holko, of Cortland, OH; sons, Dennis (Laura) Holko of Mecca Twp., OH, and Jerry (Dorothy) Holko of Johnston, OH; her twin brother, Joseph Zakrajsek of Cortland, OH; grandsons, Chad (Nicole) Holko and Craig (Stephanie Gula) Holko; granddaughters, Megan Holko and Mallory (Stephen) Gabrovsek; as well as two great-grandchildren, Luke and Lily Holko, and also many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her sister, Jennie Zakrajsek and brothers, John, Rudy and Louis "Butch" Zakrajsek.

Per the families wishes cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at a later time.

Carl W. Hall Funeral Home is honored to make these arrangements.
