Mary was predeceased by her thirteen siblings: brothers Edward, Leo, Thomas, James, Charles, Joseph, Robert, and Richard, and sisters Mabel, (infant) Lena, Thelma, Lillian, and Esther. She is survived by many nieces and nephews, as well as their children and grandchildren. She was a loving and much loved aunt and friend and will be sadly missed.
