Mary, age 92, died Tuesday, August 7, 2012 at Holy Cross Hospital in Mission Hills, CA. She died peacefully with family by her side.
Born in New York, August 4, 1920, Mary went on to attend Fordham University and received her degree in nursing. During WWII, Mary was a surgical nurse in the United States Army Nurses Corps. She married her husband Frank, had two children, and moved to California in 1955 where she had her third child. Mary continued her nursing career at Holy Cross Hospital for an additional 15 years. After retiring from nursing, Mary became actively involved in many organizations: Elks, American Legion, Italian/American Club, VFW, and Women's Auxiliary. Up to her death Mary was very dedicated by volunteering her time in helping and supporting the American Vets.
Mary loved traveling throughout the US with her husband and their motorhome. One of her passions also was to entertain friends and family and cooking her famous Italian meals.
Her husband, Frank, preceded her in death in 2002, as well as her son, Frank Jr., who died in Vietnam. She is survived by her son, Anthony; daughter, Linda; grandchildren, Debbie, Robert and Andy; and three great grandchildren. Mary will be remembered for her loving generosity and her loving memory will live on.
