Mary was born in Beacon to Peter and Irene Groza. She married Frank J. Cable on July 31, 1948 at St. Joachim Church, Beacon. Frank predeceased her on December 11, 1998. They had celebrated their 50th anniversary that July with a family vacation in Long Beach Island, NJ. Mary was a lifelong member of St. Joachim - St. John the Evangelist Church in Beacon and a former member of the St. John's Mothers Club.
Mimi enjoyed planting and caring for her flower gardens. In her younger days she loved taking walks in the woods near her longtime home on Shale Road or over the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge with her grandson. Mimi was an avid Women's College & Professional Basketball Fan. She enjoyed watching the games on TV, especially UCONN and the Lady Vols.

Her greatest joy was her family. She was extremely proud of her grandchildren, Jordan T. Haug, an attorney in Wappingers Falls, and her granddaughter, Logan E. Haug, a college student at Florida Gulf Coast University in Ft. Myers, FL. She played a major role in both their lives, providing a fun, imaginative and loving place in her home as their favorite babysitter. She will be sorely missed by all who loved her.
