Affectionately nicknamed “Sissie”, she lived most of her adult life in West Chester, PA, where she and Albert raised their 3 sons.
She liked all animals, however, she loved dogs, especially her two toy poodles, Pepe 1 & Pepe 2.
Mary enjoyed playing Bingo with her friends, dancing and trips to the casino. Mary and Albert were almost always the first ones on the dance floor, especially when her song, “Proud Mary” came on. Most of all, her favorite thing was spending time with her family and loved ones.
