    Mary Dedyo Halecky

    died 12/30/2012 at the age of 102 in Yonkers, NY. Death records put her birth on May 12, 1910. Her birth puts her 16 years after Joseph Dedyo Sr and 13 years before Ann Dedyo, indicating she could be a much younger sister to Joseph, or the daughter of an older brother.

    Confirmed 27 July 2016 by John Dedyo that Mary was niece to Joseph Dedyo.

    Her obituary indicates a son Andrew Halecky in Florida (possibly Lutz or Apopka?). Her husband was also Andrew Helecky and they married in 1929.

    May 12, 1910 - December 30, 2012

    Mary Halecky (nee Dedyo) of Yonkers died at home on Sunday, December 30, 2012 at age 102. Mrs. Halecky worked as a weaver for Alex Smith Carpet Shop for many years prior to her retirement. In 1929 she married Andrew Halecky in Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church, he died in 1984. Mary remained a devoted member of the Parish. She is survived by her son Andrew who resides in Florida. Her four grandchildren; Richard, Robert, Debbie Lotz and Laura Boyd and three great-grandchildren Brandon Lotz and Kristen and Nicholas Boyd. Visiting hours will be at the Whalen and Ball Funeral Home on Friday from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. Funeral Services will be held in Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church on Saturday, January 5th at 9:30 a.m. Interment Oakland Cemetery.

    Halecky-Zubkoff Wedding announcement
    Yonkers Herald Statesman
    Wed, January 13, 1954
    Andrew Halecky, Jr attended University of Texas, Class of 1956.

    Helen Dedyo was a bridesmaid at Andrew and Helen's wedding. Joseph Dedyo was an usher. This suggests a family relationship.

    Anna Goydosh Zubkoff, Helen's mother.

    Four grandchildren: Richard Halecky, Robert Jason Halecky (1960?), Debbie Lotz and Laura Boyd and three great-grandchildren Brandon Lotz and Kristen and Nicholas Boyd.

    Other associated names: Helen Zubkoff Halecky (wife of Andrew Halecky Jr, possibly b. 1932, married 1954), Elizabeth Birdsong (Renee Halecky), Stephen Birdsong, Don Birdsong, Harold Lotz, Nancy Lotz, John Lotz, Brandon Lotz, James Boyd.

    An Andrew Halecky born in 1862 is buried in Yonkers. His father or other relative?

    There also appears to be another Andrew (1903), Anna (1903), Andrew Jr (1927), Helen Halecky (1933), also in Florida.

    This alternate Andrew may be the subject of this inquiry.
