Mary Carver
May 3, 1924 - October 18, 2013 Mary Carver, 89, died October 18 at home following a brief illness. She was born in Los Angeles, CA, May 3, 1924 to Carmen Delmar and John Carvellas. Ms Carver was active in film, stage, and television for more than 60 years. She starred as Cecilia Simon in the hit television series Simon and Simon; she appeared in such films as From Here to Eternity, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, Arachnophobia and many more. She also appeared on Broadway in The Shadow Box as well as in The Fifth of July and taught in the theater department at the University of Southern California. Mary loved to travel, loved to argue politics and was an inveterate flirt! She will be missed. She is survived by her daughters Lia Sargent of Hollywood, and Athena Sargent and son-in-law John Sergneri of Petaluma, California, and lots and lots of friends. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Motion Picture and Television Fund (MPTF) "In Memory of Mary Carver," 23388 Mulholland Dr., Woodland Hills, CA 91364.

I googled your mom to see if I could contact her and see how she liked LA and was stunned to see her obituary. You were blessed to have her as a mom. She spoke of her daughters constatly while she was "in the chair" May she rest in peace.
Sincerely,

While her flame has been extinguished her star will shine on. Mary was such an important part of our lives for so long - and oh did we have fun! She lived her life with emphasis! She will be sorely missed.

A towering presence despite her diminutive stature. Her passion for the work has permeated generations of performers.

I am so sorry to read of Mary's death. I watched her all the time on Simon and Simon. I thought she was a fine choice to play their mother.
