Mary Zakak, 76, was welcomed into God’s loving hands on March 22nd 2019, at her home in Newton Massachusetts surrounded by her family.

Mary was born in Alexandria, Egypt on August 14, 1942 to the parents Eugenie and Aziz Mattar. Here, she met, fell in love with and married her husband Nagui Zakak. Mary lived her life, along with her husband and extended family, in Lebanon. They emigrated to the United States, a country which they loved dearly and lived the majority of their lives.

Mary was a passionate worker who devoted her capabilities to friends and colleagues during her many years at both C&K / ITT, Newton, MA and Cognex, Natick, MA.

Mary loved traveling, spending time with family and friends and making sure her loved ones understood how special they were in her life. She enjoyed the beach and sunshine. She will be remembered as a devoted member of St. Bernard’s Church and a loving mother, sister, grandmother, aunt and relative.

Mary is survived by her husband Nagui Zakak; her daughter Rita Teichmann and husband Keith; her daughter Nicole Zakak and husband Matt Draper; her two grandchildren Christian Teichmann and Lily Draper; her brother and sisters; and many loving nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated Tuesday, March 26th at 10AM in St. Bernard Parish 1523 Washington St. West Newton, followed by interment in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Needham. Visiting hours will be held Monday evening from 5-7PM in the Burke & Blackington Funeral Home, 1479 Washington St. West Newton.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation

I have been truly blessed to have known someone like Mary for the past 12 years. Mary was a kindhearted, sweet, and beautiful person. As a recipient of all of that, I'm going to miss her greatly, but feel good to know that she is in a better place and heaven just gained an angel. I love you Mary, rest in peace.

I've worked at Cognex for 17 years, and for the last 12 I was blessed to see Mary every day I came in to the office. She was always a "classy lady" and brought a smile to my face. I can't think of a better representative of Cognex to greet our customers and visitors when they entered our facilities. She will be remembered fondly and missed deeply. My condolences to her family and I pray you receive strength and peace at this difficult time.
