Born in Trenton, NJ, she was a lifelong area resident. Mary was a member of St. Anthony’s Church, their Altar Rosary Society, baked for and worked at their Bingo games for more than 40 years. Mary was a hard worker with an impeccable work ethic. Over the years she held many positions. She worked at Lenox, Thermoid and Lawrence Hose to name a few. She went on to work in the cafeteria at many of the Hamilton Twp. Schools, as well as many other jobs, but her most important job was being a homemaker and caregiver for her family.
