Mary was born on January 15, 1937 in Putney, W. Va., with her family moving to Youngstown in 1952 where she worked for General Electric for 42 yrs. retiring in 1998. In 2015 Mary decided to leave the cold weather behind and moved to Apollo Beach, FL.
Even though Mary was never married or had children, she loved life and her family. She was always so generous, loving and caring. Mary was the God Mother of the family.
Mary had such style, grace and was passionate in whatever she did, Mary loved her bingo and gambling. In 1987, she had the idea to take her 2 sisters, Joyce and Pam to Las Vegas for sister’s vacation That trip turned into a yearly sister’s week in Vegas. In 2017, they made their 30 th year. The sisters even had hot pink matching shirts saying, “Sister’s week 30 th year”. That was their last trip together as 3 sisters enjoying each other’s tears and laughter.
Mary will be missed more than she may have ever realized, her wisdom, memories, beauty, smile and the love she had, will live in our hearts forever.
