Mary Margaret Postich, who with her husband moved to Oakview Highway in East Hampton 30 years ago, died on Monday at Dominican Village in Amityville. She was 93.
She was born in New York City on Sept. 16, 1917, one of five children of the former “Mama” Bokowska and “Papa” Limberg. Her parents and her husband, Joseph A. Postich Sr., died before her.
Ms. Postich grew up in the city and, after graduating from high school, she went to secretarial college. Until she retired she was an executive secretary at United Way.
She and her husband moved to East Hampton to be closer to her sisters.
According to her son, Joseph A. Postich Jr., his mother was a very spiritual and religious person, and she was involved in church affairs both in Manhattan and in East Hampton at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church.
Her sisters, Vera Dryer of East Hampton, Jeannie Limberg, Amanda Limberg, and Olga Lepain, all of Manhattan, died before Ms. Postich. Her brother, Bill Limberg of Manhattan, also died before her.
In addition to her son and his wife, Wendy Bliss, who live in Bermuda, she is survived by many nieces and nephews.
A funeral will be held at Most Holy Trinity tomorrow at 11 a.m., followed by burial at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Coram.
