Mary served as an Andy Frain usher while in high school and never missed a reunion in the years since.
Her love of children led her to an early career at the St. Vincent DePaul Orphanage in Chicago and later as a volunteer for more than 20 years at the Loyola Pediatric Unit.
Her many interests included researching family genealogy, making many trips to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah and she enjoyed a good round of bingo.
In recent years, her greatest joy was spending time with her two beautiful granddaughters.
Mary graciously donated her body to The Anatomical Gift Association of Illinois so that others may learn more about the human body.
A celebration of Mary's life will be hosted by the family on Sunday, September 18, 2022 from 12 noon to 3 P.M. at The Elm, 23 W. Harris Ave., LaGrange, IL.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the American Cancer Association are appreciated.
