I only knew Mary for the last almost a year at the Senior Center - and I shared "her" table as I sat next to her everyday I could...she was tough but sweet and very kind to me. I will, and do, miss her - the 'table' is just not the same.

Mary and I were church friends. We'd meet sometimes at St. Francis, and walk slowly back along 7 th. Avenue, chatting, and so I got to know a little about her life. Sometimes we'd find each other at St Saviours. Recently Mary shared with us regulars, her concerns for Charles's health, and her sadness that she couldn't get to see him. Always her family and friends were in her prayers. My deepest sympathy goes out to all her family.

Mary and I were upstairs/downstairs neighbors for many years, so we interacted with one another on an almost daily basis. I always enjoyed hearing stories from her life growing up in Brooklyn and what the neighborhood was like in years past. She was a very caring friend and like to share ice cream sandwiches and other treats with me if she had them. My favorite memories of Mary will always be the time we cooked one of her favorite recipes together, macaroni pie, when her oven was broken. We both enjoyed it so much, it became at least a once-yearly tradition with us, even after the oven was repaired! I am so sad that Mary is no longer with us, I moved away from the city, so I heard about this today from a friend. My condolences and love go out to her family and the block neighbors. Mary is my favorite neighbor, ever!

Aunt Mary was one of the kindest and most thoughtful people. One evening I went to hang out on my best friend’s (Mary’s niece) stoop. We were all sitting and chatting and I was talking about having an urge for English muffin pizzas. Oh, I could just picture and taste them. I did not notice Mary had slipped away into the house. A little while later, here comes Aunt Mary with a tray filled with freshly made English muffin pizzas! I was so surprised and they were soooo good!! That was what Aunt Mary was all about!

Our deepest condolences to Mary's family, friends and loved ones.

We've lived more or less directly across the street from Mary & Cecilia for 14+ years. Her presence and watchful gaze always made me feel more at home. She was one reason that our block also felt a bit more like a community, rather than isolated houses and residents. We'll really miss her.

Miss Mary I was blessed to have known you during my time as a Volunteer at the Park Slope Center for Successful Aging. I have really kind and special memories of you and your thoughtfulness. I will always remember the many hats you crocheted for me and your spirit will be with me always. Gone but not forgotten, rest in peace.

Such a good woman, and a great neighbor. During an era when NYC was such a rough place to be, 4th street was always a place where neighbors could be relied on to have one another's backs. Mary was exactly that type of neighbor: if she saw us kids doing anything wrong, she'd gently set us straight...if my grandmother was sick, she'd look in to find out if she needed anything. My mother couldn't and wouldn't walk up the block without stopping, first, to have a chat with Nancy, and then, again, to chat with Mary. I'd like to think they're all together, now - exchanging coupons, trading recipes, and telling funny stories. My condolences to Bertha, Charles, and the entire family. May she rest in peace.

Great Aunt Mary I will always remember the kind things you’ve done for my family and the times that we spent together. You had a big heart. You will be missed. You are now at peace.

I’ll miss you Mary. You were the best yard sale seller I knew. Thank you for the help you gave me.
Rest In Peace.
Love, Dee

My mother was one of 11 children. She is survived by her brother Anthony. She was widowed very young and a part of her never really got over losing my father. She was a devout Catholic and her faith always saw her through the rough times in her life. She was loved and she loved. I hope all the people in her life know that she is at peace and with her beloved Sol. My brother and I appreciate all the condolences from the many people who knew her. God bless you all.
