After graduating from high school she did some traveling with her family and eventually landed in CT.

She was a wonderful and caring woman who saw the best in everyone and everything.

Per Mary’s request there will be no funeral services at this time. Services will be arranged in CA in the month of November. Gerald will be holding a private family gathering at their home in CT. Flowers can be sent to 255 Windham Rd., Willimantic, CT 06226. 

Please consider making a donation to raise much needed funds to cover the funeral expenses and support the family.

No donation is too small and your support would be greatly appreciated.
