Marie, the youngest of 7 children, was born and raised in Rochelle Park, N.J. She worked as a secretary at Standard Oil Corporation in New York until her marriage to her late husband, Paul Yelavich, in 1948. A resident of Cedar Grove since 1957, she raised 5 children and was an active member of St. Catherine of Siena Church and School and Ridge Road School and worked with Mary Wood’s Estate and House Sales for many years. Devoted to her family and her faith, Marie was incredibly selfless, always putting others before herself and had a deep conviction about caring for those less fortunate and supporting Catholic and faith-focused organizations.
