Special gratitude for her earthly guardian angel David Zotta and Patty, her caretaker, who supplied an endless array of flowers all year long and companionship for over 2 years. In her younger years, she was a parishioner of St. Rita’s Church, Dundalk, MD, where she also attended grade school. She was a graduate of the first graduating class of Catholic High School, Baltimore, MD. She also attended night school at John Hopkins University for radio and electronics, where she went on to work for Bendix and the signal corps during WWII. She was involved in girl scouting from an early age and later became a leader for several years as well as a cub scout den leader at St. Rita’s. Born and raised in St. Helena, she was an advocate for the area youth and various community programs. She wrote a weekly column for the Dundalk Eagle. After her husband passed, she returned to college and was a graduate of Dundalk Community College, where she earned a degree in Gerontology. She worked for the Dundalk Department of Aging as an activity coordinator at various senior centers throughout Baltimore. Mary was also a seamstress, a talent she learned from her mother. She also learned to play piano at a young age and played up to her 96 plus years. The later part of her life, she moved to Rensselaerville, NY and was a parishioner of St. John the Baptist Church in Greenville. She was a volunteer for the Rensselaerville Historical Society and the firehouse blood drives. She attended many lectures and seminars at the Institute of Man & Science and shared her joy of learning with her family.
