Mary Jane (Kovacs) Toth, age 83, passed away peacefully on July 18, 2020 at Orchard Villa in Oregon. The youngest of six, daughter of Mary (Kurtulik) and Károly Kovacs, immigrants from Hungary, Mary Jane grew up in Birmingham on Valentine Street in Toledo. She attended Waite High and worked for Rossford Ordinance Depot. In 1967, she married the love of her life, Nandor Toth, at St. Stephen Church. It apparently took her some time to decide, as she said she didn’t like dad when she first met him. Mary Jane stayed home, taking care of her family and raising their children. When Nandor became ill and unable to work in 1983, she took a job to help support her family in housekeeping at an Oregon nursing home, where she eventually retired. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, sisters Betty Gall and Irene Shaner, brother Elmer Kovacs and two siblings that died as children. She is survived by her children, Alex, Jennifer (Steve) and Eric, two grandchildren, Stephen and Bailee Pasztor. She is also survived by a niece and nephews whom she adored. Mary was a devout Catholic, who also loved a good dirty joke and having beers with her sisters at the Birmingham VFW, the Hungarian Festival, Consaul Tavern and Tuckers. Thank you to the staff at Orchard Villa, and Hospice of Northwest Ohio for your loving care. She is so loved and will be missed beyond words.
