Morosics, Judit “Judy”

August 23, 1947 ~ February 23, 2021

MOROSICS, Judit “Judy” Maria – Age 73 of Sombra, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, February 23, 2021. Beloved wife of Karoly “Charlie” Morosics. Loving mother of Rita Morosics and Erika Alexander (Jef). Cherished grandmother of Ryan and Sarah Alexander. Her sister ZsuZsanna Schmidt and her extended family from Hungary will also miss her terribly as well as by her extended Canadian family  who she loved like her own, Noreen and Jessica Nantais. Predeceased by her parents Istvan and Emerencia (Pozvai) Mosonyi. Judy moved to Canada from Hungary with her husband and taught herself English with some help of her restaurant patrons and the crossword puzzle. Together they operated Riverview Restaurant in Sombra for 52 years. They enjoyed travelling many places around the world with their friends Judy and Gabe. She was always ready to lend a helping hand or a sympathetic ear and thusly had many friends all around the province. Judy persevered through her first brain tumour with her characteristic strength and determination. Anyone that knew her would say that it was probably her stubbornness that helped the most but ultimately it was too much even for her.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a celebration of life will be held at a later date.

  2. Dear Charlie, Erika, Rita and extended Family….I and my entire Family were very sadden to learn of Judy’s sudden passing, our deepest condolences go out to you all. Your Wife, Mother and Grandmother was truly a wonderful Soul, I am so glad to have known her and called her “Friend”. Sombra will not be the same without Judy, she will be missed by all that knew her.

  3. Dear Charlie, Rita and Erika and family, So very sorry to read about Judy’s departure from this world to be with the angels. It seems we all felt like family while visiting your restaurant and Judy was such a big part of that. She will be missed by all who knew her and may she be at peace and still know she is loved. Take care to you all.

  4. Charlie, Erika, Rita, and family, It was pretty crushing to hear the news about your great, great mother. With the passing of Judy, so to goes a big part of my childhood. Some of my earliest memories are tagging along with dad for his morning coffee and crossword with the rest of the Sombra gang, to dinners at ‘the restaurant’ when mom was out and it was ‘dad’s turn to cook’. Then throughout high school, when I’d be home from university, to even now with my own children, when you went to the restaurant you were treated like a member of the family. It didn’t matter how long in between visits it had been..days, weeks, and even years…the restaurant always felt like home…because of your mom. I will have fond memories of her and ‘the restaurant’ and to say that she will be missed is understatement for everyone in this community.

  5. Charlie and family my deepest sympathy. Judy was definitely one of a kind. She always made mom feel so special whenever she came in and especially on her birthdays. Judy always treated everyone as family. She will be missed.
    May she rest in peace. Nancy Jackson

  15. Charlie, Erika and Rita:
    Phil Bezaire advised me yesterday of the passing of our dear friend Judy. In the 10 years I spent working at the office in Sombra I came to enjoy sitting in the restaurant “shooting the breeze” with all of you, watching both Erika and Rita grow up to be fine responsible young adults who I’m sure Judy was proud of. She was easy to talk to and would sit down if she had time and pretty much talk about anything going on in the world. I’m certainly a better person for knowing Judy. God bless.

  16. We are truly sorry for your loss. We would like to offer you and your family our deepest condolence on the passing of you Judy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Joan and Paul
