Mary had a wonderful sense of humor and taught us how to laugh at ourselves and each other. She will be sadly missed by family and friends.
Her greatest joy in life was being a mother and grandmother, caring for her family was a priority. She would do anything she could to help her children and grandchildren. She also enjoyed going to craft shows, crossword puzzles, playing scrabble, golfing in the “Bag Ladies” golf league, and spending time working in her many flower gardens.
A private service was scheduled at the convenience of the family. A celebration of life will be held later with friends and family. Arrangements were under the care of the Dusckas-Martin Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc. 4216 Sterrettania Rd.
A special thanks is given for the loving care she received from everyone at Elmwood Gardens where she spent the last 21 months of her life. Memorials may be made to Elmwood Gardens SNF, 2628 Elmwood Avenue, Erie, PA 16508.
