Harrington, Mary (Holloran) - Miami  
Mary was a remarkable woman from a remarkable family. Born in St. Paul, she was raised in the small town of Jackson, Minnesota. Her parents, a doctor and nurse, founded the area's first acute care hospital and later turned their home into a facility for seriously disabled children. Mary was born Oct. 23, 1923 to care for others, and her happiest times were when she was doing just that. A child of the tumultuous 20th Century, she was an inspiration for her four children to try, as she did, to make the world a better place. A devout Catholic, she lived the essential Christian commandment, "As I loved you, so you must love one another." A resident of Miami, Fla., since 1964, she was recognized by The Miami Herald in November 1990 for her work leading homeless and addicted people to C.H.A.N.G.E. their lives through education and rehabilitation, for which we are all very proud to this day. Mary was pre-deceased by her husband, William; a son, William Jr.; and five siblings. She is survived by sons, Thomas (Leslie) and Timothy (Flora) of Miami; daughter, Ann Healy (Jim) of Statesboro; daughter-in-law, Tania of Miami; 13 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren; sisters, Ann and Marie; brother, John; and countless people graced by knowing her. On her behalf, we thank each of her wonderful caretakers from Visiting Angels, as well as Dorette Blake and close family friend, Delmis Zuniga. Donations to heifer.org , The Dominican Womens' Center of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Camillus House or any other organization that recognizes and is devoted to the advancement of human dignity are appreciated. Stanfill Funeral Home in Miami is in charge of arrangements. Statesboro Herald, August 26, 2015 Sign the Legacy online guestbook at www.statesboroherald.com.
