Mary Ann Pribyl Haney, Dallas, TX

Virginia Pribyl, 90, died peacefully Saturday, July 23, 2016, at Houston’s Methodist Hospital, due to complications from Parkinson’s Disease. The youngest child of Sicilian immigrants Grace DiMare and Andrew Magliolo, she was preceded in death by her siblings Joe, Ursula, Andrew, Adolph, Albert, and Amadeo.

Virginia’s memories of growing up in Galveston included walking home in waist-deep water after a hurricane, which she would later describe as “We had a little rain.” She graduated from the University of Texas in 1947 with a BS in Nutrition, and worked as a hospital dietitian in Dallas, eventually earning a Masters degree. She married John Pribyl in 1953 and was widowed in 1993. After his death, she was sole guardian and caretaker of her special-needs daughter, whom she dearly loved.

Virginia wrote a heart-healthy cookbook, Recipes for Living, self-published in 1988. She is survived by her children Pat, Steve, Bill, and Anne, grandsons Johnny and Logan, and step-grandchildren Geoff Evans and Liz Zhang. She was a lifelong Catholic and seemed to have a direct connection to God, based on her intercessory prayers which were so often answered.
A memorial reception will be on Sunday, July 31, 2016, from 5:00pm-6:30pm, followed by the Rosary at 6:30 pm; both at Bradshaw Carter Funeral Home, 1734 W Alabama St, Houston TX. Her funeral mass will be at St Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 6800 Buffalo Speedway, Houston TX, at 10:00 am on Monday August 1, 2016, followed by a reception. The graveside service will be at 10:00 am the following day, August 2, at Moore Funeral Home and Cemetery, 1219 N. Davis Dr, Arlington TX.
