Mary was an amazing ,wonderful and , sweet person.
she had all the good things, beauty , passion for her teams …Penn State tooo…… but most of all love for her beautiful family .RIP my precious friend , there is no one like you.
I’ll never forget Mary. Everytime I saw her, she always had that huge smile on her face, even the very last time. Her smile and strong will, will forever be etched upon my heart and brain; and thinking back to all the years I’ve known her, upon our very first introduction in West Berlin, Germany, there are just so so many happy memories. They all make me laugh. So many stories, all extremely memorable. She’s touched so many people throughout her life, unfortunately cut way too short. Her memory will forever remind me to keep on smiling and remain strong regardless of what Life throws our way. Rest in Peace our sweet Mary. Your time on Earth is now over. Your are now free to soar above the clouds, pain free, looking down upon us all with your beautiful smile. I feel blessed to have been part of your life in some small part.
Gone But Never Forgotten.
Kenny hit a home run when he met Mary…and so did we!! She was a wonderful and welcome addition to our family…we were blessed. In addition to being beautiful inside and out…she was an original, witty, and always up for a laugh and good time. A gifted cook who immediately earned ‘street cred’ amongst the equally talented and silently exacting ‘stari babas’ in our family. Famous for desserts, it wouldn’t be uncommon for people to double-check before taking a bite, “Mary baked this, right?”
We’re going to miss her so immensely and will remember her fondly by recalling all the fun times we shared.
God Bless you, Mary…and Kenny’s entire family.
It lifted my spirits to see Mary’s sweet face! ☮️
Some people are just universally loved. Some people have earned heavenly and earthly favor. ✝️☦️
That’s Mary and her loving family!
We were stunned to hear of Mary’s illness and death. She helped us clean house when our lives were hectic and stresses seemed overwhelming. I’m sorry we lost track of each other. She was always cheerful, hard working, encouraging, and pleasant. She is gone much too soon. Rest in peace, Mary. We thank you one last time.

Mary was such a great mother to all her children, Grace and I have been friends since I can remember. She always treated me with kindness since I was a young kid. Mary and her amazing family will always be in my thoughts ❤️
Ken, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your wife, Mary. Did not know her except in passing during Adoration in the parking lot at St. Malachy’s. I pray for peace and strength for you and your children! Mary is Blessed to now see and touch the face of our Father and Son!!!
Rest in peace Mary.
Ken and your team are in our thoughts. .
