After she retired she went to work at a party supply store, a job she really enjoyed. After retiring a second time Mary volunteered at Hudson Valley Health Center and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church until illness forced her to stop. Mary loved spending time with family and friends, baking, flower arranging, and reading. She especially loved to travel with her family and friends and on those trips her children and grandchildren would encourage her to try new things. This included snorkeling in the Caribbean, playing golf, RV camping, Jeep trips in West Texas, and even zip lining. In her last months on earth Mary was cared for by many wonderful people to whom her family will be eternally grateful. Mary will be missed by all who knew and loved her but they take comfort knowing she is an angel in heaven and is reunited with her family and beloved family pets.
