Mary was a graduate of Mt. Carmel High School and attended the Susquehanna University.  She was employed as a Medical Technologist at the Reading Hospital.  She was a member of the Park Road Presbyterian Church of Reading since 1955, where she loved singing in the choir.  Mary enjoyed reading, baking, playing the piano and was truly a people person.
