Condolence & Memory Journal

Mary was known as "Mac" to her classmates at St. V. She was sweet and a lot of fun. She was nice to all of us. As a junior when her brother John died in Vietnam, we all wore our uniforms to the funeral as a tribute to her and her brother. Lots of good memories of her. She loved the babies. Rest in peace friend.

From Marlene and all the class of 1970 of St.Vincent School of Nursing.

Mary ( my cousin) and her siblings would visit my mom ( sometimes babysit me and my brother. Mostly Anna babysat, though.)and my mom would fix something for lunch they liked. For Angela it was scrambled egg sandwiches and when my mom knew Mary was coming she would make lots of pancakes. Once we had a contest to see who could eat the most, but I can't remember who won. I just remember being sick!

I am grieving that I didn't get a chance to spend more time with Mary.

I have good memories of Mary taking me to Rhodius Park when we were both visiting Grandma Sophie. May she rest in peace.
