Mary Rose Bednarz, 68, of Pequannock, died Monday, June 11, 2007 at the Center for Hospice of New Jersey at St. Joseph's Hospital in Wayne. Born in Checkendon, England, Mary was the daughter of the late Albert and Adelaide (nee Osman) Carter. Meeting John Bednarz, a Polish man living in England after escaping Poland during World War II, Mary married him in England, and together the couple adventurously immigrated to the United States in 1958. Settling first in Wallington, they moved to Pequannock in 1965, where they raised their two children. While taking care of her family as a homemaker, Mary ran a side business out of her home, utilizing her seamstress skills. An animal lover, she also donated her time sewing scrubs for the workers of the Pequannock Animal Shelter, in addition to many other volunteering activities there. Mary was also a parishioner of Holy Spirit R.C Church in Pequannock. She is survived by her dear husband, John; her loving son, Joseph of Pequannock; her cherished daughter, Diane Branson of Lincoln Park; and her brothers, Robert, Charles and David Carter, all of England. Funeral services will commence 8 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home, and will proceed to a 9 a.m. Funeral Mass at Holy Spirit R.C. Church in Pequannock. Burial will follow at the First Reformed Church Cemetery in Pompton Plains. Visiting hours will be Wednesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Pequannock Animal Shelter, Washington Avenue, Pompton Plains, NJ 07444 would be greatly appreciated by Marys family.
