Mary Jane Bendick, 86, passed away peacefully on Sunday December 19, 2021 at the Lutheran SeniorLife Passavant Community Abundant Life Center where she resided for the past 11 years and which she called home.  Mary Jane was born in Pittsburgh on October 4, 1935 and lived on the South Side where she raised her family and was a loving and giving mother.
