Mary Boylan Shelhamer formerly of Kearny and North Arlington N.J., was the youngest of five children born of Scottish and Irish immigrants, Annie and John Boylan, who arrived in Ellis Island in 1927.

Mary and Bill then moved to North Arlington and started their family. They were active members of Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish until they retired to Vero Beach Florida for the remainder of their life together. Mary then moved back to Toms River N.J. to be close to her family. Mary was predeceased by her husband, Rev. Mr. William Shelhamer. Sister's Jean Consandine, Catherine McManus, Margaret Weingartner and her brother Hugh Boylan. She will be lovingly missed by her children Ann Masin, Susan Cantalupo and her husband Ronald.

Her great grandchildren James, Jake, Susie, Cindy, Charlotte and Heidi. Mary also leaves behind her nieces and nephews who she loved so dearly.

May the road rise to meet you,

The wind always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

The rains fall soft upon your fields

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
