She served as a Eucharistic minister and was a food pantry helper at the cathedral. She was also a member of the St. Joseph of Carondelet Associates. Her faith and commitment to the Catholic church provided her with strength. Many people were very kind to Mary, especially during her later years. We thank Father Robert J. Hohenstein and Father William H. Pape for their many years of friendship and ministering to Mary. Also, a special "thank you" to Dr. Robert Kelleher and his staff and the Eddy Memorial who were there for Mary during her time of need. The Eddy staff showered Mary with love, dignity and superb care. Never having had a driver's license, Mary logged many miles walking throughout Albany.
