Mary Florence Wible
Feb. 26, 1936 - July 31, 2020
Mary Florence Griffin was born Feb. 26, 1936 in Cantonsville, Md., and passed away July 31, 2020 in Milwaukie, Ore. Mary was the youngest of four children and she idolized her brothers, Paul (10 years older), Gerald (8 years older), and Donald (3 years older, died at 15 months old). Paul and Gerald spoiled their sister and throughout the years they remained close.
Mary's faith was extremely important to her and she decided to enter the convent of the Good Shepherd in Maryland but soon after decided it wasn't for her. After leaving the convent she met a handsome soldier who swept her off her feet! On June 4, 1960 a St. Michael's Catholic Church in Maryland, Mary married George Wible. George was in Greenland when their first son, Chris was born in 1961. Followed by Michael born in 1963, Shelley born in 1965 and Kevin born in 1967. Being a mother and caring for her four beautiful children was her life.
In 1978, George took a different career position that relocated the family to Portland, Ore. Mary enjoyed living in Oregon but nothing could ever beat her love of Maryland's crab-cakes. She was a proud grandmother to 12 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren who all adored her. Mary was the kind of mother and grandmother every child deserves, spoiling them with love, sweet treats, hugs and kisses. She volunteered at her kid's schools and spent lots of time with her grandchildren throughout the years. Mary's commitment to her Catholic faith showed as she volunteered for Christ the King Catholic Parish in Milwaukie, OR. She washed and ironed linens for mass and took communion to the home bound for over 22 years.
When Mary wasn't with her family she enjoyed being at home, loved to read, crochet, play scrabble/jigsaw puzzles online and keep in touch with her friends over email or on the phone. Mary's devotion to God, her husband and her family, truly showed to those that knew her. Mary will be deeply missed by her husband, family, friends, and all that knew her.
