Mrs. Novocal was born July 6, 1921, in Sharon, a daughter of Andrew and Katherine Weber Marek.

She attended the former Sacred Heart Parochial Grade School and was a 1939 graduate of Sharon High School.

Marge was a cook in the cafeteria at what is now Kennedy Catholic High School, Hermitage, for 12 years, retiring in 1984.

While employed at KCHS, Marge belonged to the Boosters Club and worked on many of their projects.

She previously worked at the former Sharon Transformer Division of Westinghouse Electric Corp. for 15 years in the I-35 and T Building, where she wound motors for torpedoes used during World War II.

Marge was a member of St. Joseph’s Church, Sharon, and was a former member of Church of the Sacred Heart, Sharon, where she worked on many projects to support the school and church. She was a former member of Women of the Moose.

Marge loved children and, years ago, helped with the Knights of Columbus girls drill team.

Her husband, Joseph M. Novocal, whom she married June 22, 1946, passed away Dec. 8, 2001.

Surviving are a daughter, Mary Kaye Ashley, Clearwater, Fla., and several nieces, nephews and great-nieces and -nephews.

Besides her husband, Marge was preceded in death by her parents; four sisters, Mary Marek, Leona Palumbo, Irene Hideg and Elizabeth Treimer; two brothers, Joseph and Robert Marek; and a niece and a nephew.

The family suggests memorial contributions be made to St. Joseph’s Church, 79 Case Ave., Sharon, PA 16146.
