In memory of
Margaret E. Mayk
Margaret E. Mayk Rochester - Margy lived out God's preferential option for the poor. Her pastor Ann liked her to read Bible passages because she didn't just read them, she PRAYED them. We knew her as a woman dedicated to God's work, but often expressing herself in the most irreverent ways. She took such joy in children that, wherever she was, life came to a halt so she could meet them or speak to their parents. We will remember her independent spirit, her special charisma, as a born storyteller, and as a Christian living the Gospel. Margaret (Margy) E. Mayk, 69, of Rochester, NY, passed away on Monday, February 10, 2020. Born in Pottstown, PA, Margy was the daughter of the late Joseph Mayk Sr., and Genevieve (Corbett) Mayk. Margy received her bachelor's degree from Penn State and her master's degree from St. Paul's Seminary in Pittsburgh. She was a Cenacle sister, leading the retreat house in Rochester for several years. With Pat Merle, she was co-founder in 1992 of Step by Step, a ministry to women who are at risk, including the incarcerated. Step by Step continues to help women as a program of Volunteers of America, Western New York. She came to be a second grandma to Pat's grandkids. Margy was an active and beloved member of Covenant United Methodist Church. What she enjoyed doing in her spare time was scrap metaling; "other old ladies sat and crocheted or knitted," but she worked with metal. She fought a valiant battle with Alzheimer's, carried out in her unique and characteristically "willful" way, living on her own—with the help of her "village" of friends—until she was hospitalized a few weeks before her death. Margy is survived by her sister, Mary Catherine Fell, wife of Larry; her brother, William Mayk, husband of Renee; her sister-in-law, Josephine Mayk; and seven nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her brother, Joseph Mayk Jr. A Celebration of Life will take place on February 22, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. at Covenant United Methodist Church, 1124 Culver Rd., Rochester, NY 14609. Memorials may be given to Covenant United Methodist Church.
