Mary Etta

Mary Etta Jaco, born in Chelsea, Massachusetts on December 28, 1949, and raised in Toledo, Ohio, passed away on April 26, 2013. She leaves behind her beloved daughter, Mary Lilia Puente, who meant the world to her and was the center of her life. She also leaves behind her father, William Jaco Sr. of Oregon, Ohio; her sister, Connie Shinaver (Joe) of Houston, and her brother, William Jaco Jr. (Joan), also of Houston. She is also survived by her niece, Alyse Shinaver; nephews, Joshua (Kelsey) and Matthew Jaco and Stripey Jaco (cat). She was preceded in death by her mother, Mary M. Jaco.

Mary was raised in Ohio, but moved and lived in New York for many years and her heart was always there. She has many wonderful family and friends that will always be close to her heart. She was very passionate about politics and research and will always be remembered with a smile for her animated views. She was a very caring person and one of her final gestures was to donate her organs to Life Gift to save many lives for others.

Mary Etta attended school at New York University, and was employed at Texas Department of Banking.
