She worked many years at the Melody Lane Skating Rink in Hookstown at the coat check and also at South Side High School, where she retired in 2007 after 36 years of service in the cafeteria, first in the kitchen and then as secretary to the Food Service Director.
Mary had great faith and devotion to God and was a member of Service Presbyterian Church. She enjoyed being outdoors, planting flowers, and feeding and watching the birds. She was a Pirates fan and rarely missed a game.
