Mary was the devoted wife of the late Martin J. Morales. She was a beloved woman of many gifts, talents and virtues. A vivacious and gregarious woman who could light up a room with her free spirit and wit. She will always be remembered for her love of the Lord, her singing, dancing and laughter. Mary along with Martin opened her home and heart to scores of friends and family to serve them her famous sauce and raviolis, apple pies and others of her wonderful homemade comfort foods. She tirelessly served both strangers and friends and fervently and faithfully prayed for all. She taught Catholic Catechism and served as a Eucharistic minister for many years at her church parish of The Epiphany. Mary was a dedicated wife and mother. She is survived by her son Joseph Morales, her daughter Toni Storz, her husband Kip, her daughter Martha Morales, her son Jerry Morales, her daughter Mary Rachel, her daughter Ann Useloff, her husband Michael, and four beautiful grandsons, her sister Rachel Persicano, her brother Robert Damato, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
