Numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends also survive. Mary was born and went to school in Rochester, Pa., where she had to quit school as a young girl to work to help her family financially. It was at one of her jobs later in life as a young adult that she met the love of her life, Charles, and they later married and planned their life together in making a home and family. In 1955, they moved from Rochester to Beaver where Mary was a homemaker and lived in the home for over 50 years. She was an avid bowler in various leagues in Beaver County and was involved with her church, SS Peter & Paul Roman Catholic Church, where she belong to the Marian Guild and also volunteered with other events in the church. When she was in her late 80s, she broke up housekeeping and moved to Texas to live with her loving son. While living there, she was a member of St. Bartholomew’s Roman Catholic Church, Ft. Worth, Texas. She volunteered with a crochet group via the mail in St. Petersburg, Fla., called The Angel Stitches for four years up to the present. Mary crocheted baby blankets and hats and referred to them as labor of love and donated to the babies in the neo-natal unit of a hospital by sending them through the mail to her daughter in Florida. Mary learned to crochet at age 10 and crocheted through the years as recent as this past week. Mary has crocheted afghan blankets for many family members and friends through the years to wrap her love around them. Friends will be received Wednesday from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. in the WILLIAM MURPHY FUNERAL HOME, INC., 349 Adams St., Rochester. A Mass of Christian burial will be held Thursday at SS Peter & Paul Catholic Church, Beaver, at 12:30 p.m. Interment will be at Sylvania Hills Memorial Park. Mary’s family request that you perform a random act of kindness in her memory during this time of Christmas.
