Magdalen M. Czech, 70, of Whitesboro, died August 14, 2022 at The Grand after a brief illness.

She was born October 25, 1951, in Amsterdam, NY daughter of the late Francis A. and Marian Mroczka Czech. She was a graduate of Cazenovia College.

Maggie was employed for 38 years as a social worker with the Lutheran Homes before retiring in 2013.

She was a member of St. Paul’s Church, Whitesboro and recently attended Hart’s Hill Baptist Church in Whitesboro.

No matter the weather you could find Maggie out walking and always sporting a hat. A favorite pastime of hers was to walk to the library where she was most likely researching articles on gardening or the history of the Mohawk Valley. You only need to see her lawn to know that she loved the peace and tranquility of a garden. She didn’t have a car, TV, mobile phone or computer for any extra time was spent doing beautiful needlework, sewing, knitting, or antiquing. Maggie was a very unassuming and private person who anonymously supported many local charities.

She surrounded herself with numerous neighbors and friends who provided her with unconditional support and love; especially Marjorie Ziegler, Karla and Chris Williams, MaryAnn Martin and daughter Meghan, Elaine Evanowski, Sedija Miljkovic, Linda Gustin, Sue Radell, and Adrienne Gould.

A special thank you to the staff of The Grand 2nd floor and 4th floor for all their care and especially to her social worker Michelle.

A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday at 4:00 PM at Friedel, Williams & Edmunds Funeral and Cremation Services, 13 Oxford Rd., New Hartford. She will be interred with her parents in St. John the Baptist Cemetery, Amsterdam, NY. There are no calling hours.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the Dunham Public Library, 76 Main Street, Whitesboro, NY 13492 or a local charity of your choice.
