A native of Philadelphia, Pa and longtime resident of East Lansdowne, Pa and Drexel Hill, Pa ,

Mary was a pioneer in the early days of television, working on the technical aspects of
delivering network transmissions over the air in Philadelphia. She spent the majority of her
working career employed by Philco Ford and then subsequently by Honeywell.

grandparents, parents, aunts, and uncles. She was always a beacon of optimism and joy to her
sisters, nieces, nephews, and many friends. She was an accomplished cook and choir member

love of life. Anyone she encountered could not help but be uplifted by her spirit.
