Mary Waugh Hooker, 92, of Mechanicsburg, died Monday, March 12, 2018, at The Bridges at Bent Creek.

She was born Aug. 6, 1925, in Schenectady, N.Y., daughter of the late Robert Hunter and Rebecca MacLennan Waugh, who emigrated from Scotland and came to the United States through Ellis Island in the early 1900s.

She was preceded in death by her husband, the Rev. Charles J. Hooker Jr., 94, on March 20, 2017.

Prior to retirement, she was financial secretary with the First Presbyterian Church in Wilkes-Barre and payroll accountant for Kirby House.

Much of her life was spent being a minister's wife and a loving mother. Since moving to Mechanicsburg, she had been a member of Silver Spring Presbyterian Church.

She had always been active in the church her whole life and would never miss a Sunday service, even in her last year at The Bridges, attending services every Sunday morning.

Mary is survived by her son, Charles J. Hooker III and his wife, Kathleen D. Hooker, Camp Hill; and daughter, Jeanne Ann Hooker McConnell and her husband, John McConnell, Branchburg, N.J. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Ian Hooker, Natalie Santana, Maureen Hooker and Rebecca McConnell; a great-grandson; and several nieces and nephews.

She was interred with her husband at Silver Spring Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Mechanicsburg.
