Mary Elizabeth Fye, 81, of Punxsutawney, passed away on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh.
Mary was born on May 3, 1936, in Armstrong County, Pa., a daughter of the late Mervin Miles and Laura Mae (Sarvey) Geer. On Jan. 9, 1982, Mary married Robert Lee Fye. Robert survives and resides in Punxsutawney.
Mary led quite a busy life. She was employed by GC Murphys; Rola Jensen for 17 years; Sportwear in Punxsutawney; and County Market for 17 years, as well. Mary enjoyed attending country music concerts at county fairs and at the Jamboree in the Hills in Wheeling, W.Va. Although she liked a variety of country artists, her two favorites were Neil McCoy and Conway Twitty. She also liked being outdoors and camping at Cook Forest and on occasion, Virginia Beach, Va. Having raised six children and staying very active in all her grandchildren's lives, Mary was a terrific wife and mother who dearly loved her family.
