May 5, 1924 - October 17, 2010
Sophie “Dutchie” Mack, 86, of Toledo, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 17, 2010, at Hospice of Northwest Ohio. She was born in Swanton, Ohio on May 5, 1924 to Jacob and Catherine Woityna. She was married to Sylvester “Sal” Mack in August of 1947. Dutchie and Sal owned and operated Mack Pharmacy in Canton, Ohio, for many years, where Sal was the pharmacist and Dutch did all the bookkeeping, worked the soda fountain and waited on customers in the old-fashioned neighborhood store. Dutchie was a tireless worker, who will be remembered for her generosity to her loved ones. She enjoyed gardening, had a true “green thumb” for growing roses, and was a woman of strong Christian faith. She also enjoyed canning, and routinely treated her family and friends to great food, particularly fried tomatoes, hamburgers, baked beans, and chocolate cake (from scratch). She was a long time parishioner at Gesu Church. Surviving are her sisters, Bertha Smalley, Stella Gozdowski, Cecilia (Raymond) Vetter, and brother, Ed (Dawn) Woityna. Also surviving are nieces and nephews, Bob (Sue) Smalley, Rodney (Kathy) Smalley, Sue Goetz (Mike), Jackie (Brad) Lehman, Jerry (Mary) Vetter, Jeff Vetter, Jim (Mary Pat) Vetter, Tim (Cindy) Vetter and Paul (Leslie) Woityna. She is also survived by many great nieces and nephews. Besides her husband Sal, she was preceded in death by her brother Jacob and loving nephew Tom Vetter. Family and friends may visit on Thursday, October 21, 2010, at Gesu Church, 2049 Parkside Boulevard, between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. A funeral mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m., at Gesu Church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Gesu Church or Hospice of Northwest Ohio in Dutchie's honor. Special thanks to the nurses at Hospice of Northwest Ohio for their wonderful care in Dutchie's last weeks.
