BOYLE, Mary Jane Topping
Was born in Elmira, NY on 14 December 1939 and died in the Manor Nursing Home in Horseheads, NY on 6 April 2012 with complications from Diabetes, as did her father Glenn, and brothers Lawrence and Peter before her. She was also preceded in death by her mother, Eleanor New Topping, and most of her aunts and uncles. She had a short marriage to George Boyle and that produced the love of her life, James Boyle. She successfully raised her son James and was greatly involved in raising her grandson, Christopher Boyle. As she was a single mother, she had many jobs to support her family. She had many friends from school, from her work, from peers and son James, and toward the end, heath care providers Randi Kline and Marilyn Ross from the Manor. Special friends were Nancy Hable, Jeannette Andrews, longtime friend and Skill One supervisor at the Manor and her elder brother, James Topping. She had a hard life but she also had a stout heart, made a happy life for herself and was proud to the end. A Remember Mary Jane Wake for family and friends will be held at the Hickory House on Watkins Rd. from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, 14 April 2012.
