Obituary for Mary Agnes Kratsas

Mary A. Kratsas, 86, of Wyomissing and formerly of Phoeniz, AZ, went to be with the Lord on Monday, May 31, 2021. Born in Tacoma, WA, Mary was the only child of the late Henry and Mary (Reichlin) Schryber.

Mary graduated from St. Leo High School, Tacoma, in 1952. She worked professionally as a secretary for a number of businesses before joining the firm of Brown and Toleu Court Reporters. From 1977 through 1980, after relocating to Reading, she opened three Hallmark stores. In 1980 she joined the staff of the Berks County District Attorney’s Office, working as a legal secretary and office manager. From 1986 until 1995, Mary worked as a legal secretary for Stevens and Lee Attorneys before moving back to Arizona. In 2008, she retired to Pennsylvania.

She had a passion for music and was an accomplished pianist and gifted vocalist. She performed in a number of musicals and the Berks Grand Opera for a number of years. As much as she loved music, she was even more devoted to sports—Mary loved baseball and football, and followed a number of teams—the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Philadelphia Phillies, the Arizona Cardinals, the Phoenix Suns.

Little Mary, as she was known to her friends, was a dedicated member of the Bernville Community Fire Company’s social club, and she spent numerous hours giving of her time and talents. She particularly enjoyed organizing the craft shows.

Left to treasure Mary’s memory are her children: Charles V. Kimmel II (Diane L.) of Birdsboro; Terry D. Kimmel (Janna) of Broken Arrow, OK; Sheri L. (Kimmel) Crespo of Reading; and Jackie I. Donati (partner of Dean Darcourt) of Wernersville. She is also survived by her grandchildren: Chuck, Megan, Terry Jr., Garner “Gary”, Jeremiah, Nathan, Mathias, and Michael; step grandchildren Pete and Madison; 17 great grandchildren; and her former husband, Jack Kratsas.

In addition to her parents, Mary was predeceased by her first husband, Charles V. Kimmel, in 1967. She was also predeceased by her uncle, Ben Schryber.

A memorial service for Mary will be held on Saturday, June 12, 2021, at 2:00 PM at the Edward J. Kuhn Funeral Home, Inc., 739 Penn Ave, West Reading. Friends and family are invited to gather from 1:00 PM until the start of services at the funeral home. Condolences, tributes, and fond memories may be expressed at

My prayers go out to Mary's family. Mary was one of my best friends. We loved going to PF Changs for our lettuce wraps and Mongolian steak. We had fun going to see the Phillies and the Diamondbacks play. She loved helping and running many fundraisers at the fire company. She always had a way with words of advice for me. I'm going to miss our chats, our laughs and seeing her smiling face.
