Margaret O'Nan

Margaret O’Nan (née Balcerzak), 81, entered into rest at her home in East Amherst on March 31, 2020.

Born Aug. 8, 1938 in Medina, she was a daughter of the late William and Anna (Piatek) Balcerzak.

Marge graduated from Medina High School in 1956 and went on to earn a master’s degree in physical therapy from the University of Buffalo. Margaret worked as a physical therapist for many years. She lived many years of her life in the state of Oregon with her husband, Fred O’Nan. Upon retirement, they owned and operated Lazy Acres RV Park in Gold Hill, Ore. After Fred died in 2017, she returned to Western New York to be closer to her family. Marge was an animal lover, especially dogs and cats, and she enjoyed gardening. She was also an avid doll maker and doll collector.

She is survived by her sister, Genevieve Dujenski of Olathe, Kan.; stepdaughter, Cathi (Charles) O’Nan Bower of Langley, Wash.; and several nieces, nephews and cousins in the Medina area.

Besides her parents and husband, Marge was predeceased by six siblings, Dorothy Balschmiter, MaryAnn Curtin, John, Arthur, Richard and William Balcerzak.

A graveside committal service will be held at a later date in Sacred Heart Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Roswell Park Alliance Foundation, P.O. Box 631, Buffalo NY 14240; or to SPCA, 300 Harlem Road, West Seneca NY 14224.
