A long time parishioner at Sts. John & Paul Church in Larchmont, Mary worked as a secretary in the rectory and also taught public speaking in the school. She and her family were long time members at the Orienta Beach Club in Mamaroneck where they still have many friends and happy memories of summers spent there. Mary moved to Florida in 1992 but returned to NY frequently. On drives along the east coast she and Tom enjoyed visiting historical places like Colonial Williamsburg, Charleston, and Savannah. One of Mary’s fondest memories was of her and Tom’s 50th anniversary party, celebrated in Florida with all her children and grandchildren, and other family and friends.
