Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Mary Virginia Doresky, 93, formerly of Mystic and Pawcatuck, Connecticut, passed away in Columbus, Georgia on October 27, 2021. Mary was born on September 19, 1928 to Edward and Hilda Abbott in Annapolis, Maryland. She is preceded in death by her husband, John “Jack” Doresky, her parents and her brother, Charles Abbott. Mary is survived by her son, John, daughter-in-law, Vivian, two grandsons, Jack and Mason, and two nieces and two nephews.
As a navy wife, Mary and her family lived in many places, but she spent most of her life in Mystic and Pawcatuck, Connecticut. Much of her work life she was employed as a bank teller which allowed her to meet and befriend many folks from the area. Many would describe Mary as a “character” that took great joy in making people laugh.
Mary loved her pets, and was extremely fond of reading and working through crossword puzzles. She loved to celebrate the holidays as it always gave her the opportunity to spend extra time with her family. She is remembered for her outgoing personality and friendly attitude as she loved children and never met a stranger. She was a devoted mother, grandmother and friend. It goes without saying that her family will miss her deeply.
A memorial will be held at a later date in Mystic, Connecticut. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to PAWS of Columbus, Georgia in honor of Mary Doresky.
The Doresky family is being assisted by Georgia Cremation, 7500 Veterans Parkway, Suite A, Columbus, Georgia 31909, 706-577-0055. The family invites you to leave a condolence or share a fond memory below.
