Mary Mucha, age 95, of Deep River, passed away on Friday, December 16, 2016 at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown. Mary was the beloved wife of Philip J. Mucha who predeceased her on April 5, 2008. She was born in Rockfall, Connecticut on February 24, 1921, the daughter of Louis and Katie (Hajec) Kokoszka.

Mary supported Philip throughout the years as his office manager in the operation of his home building business. She was a communicant at Saint Joseph's Church in Chester. With her great love of basketball and baseball, she was indeed an avid follower of the UConn Lady Huskies and the Boston Red Sox. She will be remembered for her devotion and care of her vegetable garden and blueberry bushes.
She loved to bake, her pies and cookies were everyone's favorites. The family would like to thank Mary's caregiver, Mercy Boateng, for her love and support of Mary over the past year.
