Mary was born on September 8, 1924 in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania and passed away into the presence of her Lord on January 21, 2020 at her home in Wickliffe after a long illness. At a young age, she and her family moved to Collinwood where she met her husband, John. Eventually, Mary and John moved to Wickliffe where they lived for 68 years. Mary received her certification as a cosmetologist and worked at various hairdresser’s shops, including the salon at Higbee’s and Belle Jacobs. She enjoyed giving free haircuts to her loved ones.
Mary was a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. It was her strong devotion to Christ that guided her life and caused her to share God’s love to everyone around her. She was active at Calvary Assembly of God, singing in the choir, involved in the women’s group and Sunday school and taught young girls in the Missionettes program. Several of these girls have shared how her love for them changed their lives and remained with them through the years. Mary also prayed fervently and constantly for her family and the needs of others. She was truly the spiritual heart of her family and will be missed by all who knew her.
