Mary was a lifelong member of the Holy Trinity Byzantine Catholic Church in Sykesville, PA. Our mother was the “heart” of our family.

Mary really enjoyed attending her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren’s school activities and sporting events – especially baseball games – where she would “cheer” them on. She was the best Mother and “BaBa” in the world!
