Magdolna Bencze Csaszar (Magda), 87, passed away peacefully on Monday, February 12, 2024, in Austin, Texas. Magda was a wonderful wife to Albert, a great mother to her three children—Andrea, Norbert, and Albert— a devoted grandmother to her three granddaughters, Sonya, Audrey, and Karolyn, and cherished her three great-grandchildren, Avery, Tyler, and Ellie. She loved her daughter-in-law Grace, and she was a thoughtful sister to Karcsi, and loved her parents Karoly and Rozalia Bencze. Magda was a good friend to many people around the world.

Magda was born and raised in Nagykanizsa, Hungary, to parents who were cobblers. She met the love of her life, Albert, working in the oil fields of Bazakerettye, Hungary, where she was an oil technician, and he was a petroleum engineer.

In 1956, the pair embarked on a remarkable journey, fleeing Hungary during the Hungarian Revolution. Magda and Albert’s adventures started then and truly never stopped: as refugees in Austria, they immigrated to the U.S. (where their 3 children were born), then moved across the world (again!) to Saudi Arabia, where they spent 25 years raising their children, working, and creating lasting memories, before retiring in Austin, Texas. Throughout the years, Magda, Albert, and their family traveled extensively around the world, making numerous visits to family and friends in Hungary over the years.

Magda left an impression on all those she met during her life’s travels. She was very competitive and loved playing tennis and golf when she was younger, along with bridge and mahjong. She greatly enjoyed her retirement in Austin, Texas, at Barton Creek, traveling around the U.S., and remaining close to family and friends.

Magda is remembered for her deep love of her family and friends, and for sharing her life with others. She was curious about the world and easily made acquaintances wherever she went. Alongside her husband, Magda loved to entertain, warmly opening their home to many. Magda particularly enjoyed having her entire family gathered together, showcasing her love through her fantastic cooking.

We let her go to be with God with lots of love, knowing she will always remain in our hearts and minds. The extended Csaszar family sincerely appreciates your thoughts and prayers, and thanks you for joining us in celebrating the beautiful life of Magdolna Bencze Csaszar. She will be dearly missed.
