Mary L. Gillar, 83, of Olyphant, died Sunday morning in Mid-Valley Hospital, Blakely. She was the widow of Walter Gillar, who died in 1973.

Born in Old Forge, daughter of the late Francis and Sophia Costa Tigue, she was a graduate of St. Ann's High School in West Scranton. Before retirement, she was a quality-control inspector for Lockheed Martin in Archbald.
