Mary Renda, 88, of Monroeville, peacefully died Sunday, April 23, 2023.  Born in Trafford and the only daughter of the late John, Sr. and Mary (Pavkovic) Stanisic who emigrated from Zagreb, Yugoslavia (Croatia).  She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph G. Renda, of Regent Square, Wilkinsburg and Brushton and her two older brothers, Frank and John, Jr. of Trafford.

She is survived by daughters Toni (Mike) of Pittsburgh, Kim Renda of Wilmerding, a grandson, Brandon (Sarina), and granddaughter, Brittany (Zachary), and two great grandsons, Porter and Weston and a younger brother, Joe Stanisic of Walnut Creek, California.

Mary was both a special and classy lady.  She was a friend to so many and her door was always open to visitors. Mary always had a big smile, a huge heart and loved entertaining both friends and family. She had many interests and blessed with many circles of friends to do so with and especially playing cards. Mary truly blessed her daughters, family and friends with so many wonderful memories. Heaven has truly gained a beautiful angel and now she’s dancing with her husband once again as they did for decades.

A special thank you goes out to her daughter Kim and also compassionate helper Carol as well as her friends who showed their continued love and support especially during the past 5 years.
