Our deepest sympathy to all the family. Bobbie was such a special person, and we always enjoyed seeing and spending time with her! She will be missed.
Love from Janet and Dale
Dear Martin, Carol, Fr. Dan and Matthew and family
Irene and I send our sincere condolences to all of you on the passing of your beloved, wonderful mother Bobby.
She was the most devoted wife and loving mother. Your father and mother lived in the Trailer Camp at BW right behind the stadium when Sonny was in college starring in football, basketball and baseball. He was a fabulous athlete and a better husband and father.
I believe that your mother was a very important key to his success in sports and in teaching. They were role models as a married couple and we learned from them.
May her memory be eternal.
Ted and Irene Theodore
Dear Degyansky Family:
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and unfortunately, we will miss the opportunity to share the wonderful memories of your Mom in person. I know Marianne and I had the distinct honor and pleasure of knowing and sharing our love with both your Mom and Dad for well over 50 years.
Although we will not be able to attend your Mom’s services, we will be with all of you in spirit.
Scott and Marianne
I am so sorry for your loss. Hers was a life well lived. I was acquainted with her through the Hungarian Genealogy Group which she was still active in not long ago. It took several people to fill the responsibilities she had this past season. May your memories comfort you and the hope of the resurrection.
To the Degyansky Family,
On behalf of my brothers Dan and Bob, and our families, please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your mother. Your parents were dear friends of my mother and father. At Lakewood High School Mr. Degyansky and Mr. D. were icons of the school, as coaches, counselors, and administrators. They were loved and respected by all. But what made them so special was the two very loving and very strong women behind them.
Mrs. Degyansky (Bobbie) was the sweetest, kindest, and most giving friend of my parents that I knew growing up, and throughout my adult life. She may have passed on after an incredibly full life of 90 years, but her spirit and her legacy will live on. As Cicero said over 2 millennia ago, “the lives of the dead, are placed in the memories of the living.” Both your parents have left you, and all who knew them, with a treasure trove of memories that will keep them with us in our hearts and in our thoughts.
With Love, and fond memories,
Tony and Bonnie DiBiasio
I am so sorry for your lost. Aunt Bobby was a very special person and I adore her. She was fascinating and fun to talk to and had such elemental good sense, grounded in both reason and a keen understanding that humor is essential. I always felt I would have been a better person had I been able to spend more time with her and despite the very small amount of time I did spent with her, she has always been in my mind as someone I refer to as in “what would Bobby say?”. Some folk just stick with a person, if that person is lucky. I can hear her laughing at what I am writing right now. I was very lucky to know her, as I was to know your family at all. Much Affection.
