Mary’s sense of humor was like no other. She had a trove of corny jokes to share. She would share those with all. I think she laughed harder than anyone at the punchline. There were the dirty jokes that she shared with those who would accept them without judgement or those she would like to shock.
Mary loved her pets. I remember visiting her and grandmother when her dog Chuckie was there. Mary was always welcoming and affectionate. Chuckie was also happy to see us. Unfortunately, he didn’t want us to leave. He bit me as I tried to leave. We all laughed at this kooky dog.

My most vivid memories of Aunt Mary go back to my early childhood when I spent countless adventures with Michele and Michael exploring the neighborhood in and around Vista Del Monte or in the colorful streets in various Hollywood neighborhoods. In the 1960s, the San Fernando Valley was the epitome of track houses and manicured lawns; but HOLLYWOOD, well that was a real adventure! When it was my turn to spend a weekend at her home, she would pick me up on a Friday afternoon in the square back cream-colored station wagon cursed with the chronic rattle in the back and drive over the Cahuenga pass via Ventura Boulevard. She didn't drive freeways then, which was fine with me because that meant a stop at the corner liquor store to load up on candy with the $.25 she gave each of us. For me, it was always Sweet Tarts and a Three Musketeers bar, which I devoured before we even hit the Hollywood sign. At the end of the day, she would come into the bedroom to be sure that we recited a Hail Mary or two followed by my grandmother's sprinkling of holy water. We spent our days at Mussel Beach, the dry cleaners shop, Plummer Park, and Pick and Save always scheduled around "As the World Turns" or the other variety of soap operas which, like Catholicism, she followed with sincere devotion. On Sundays, we attended mass at Blessed Sacrament Church followed Tiny Naylor's on Highland and Sunset for a car hop breakfast of pancakes and hot chocolate. As we prepare to say our final good-byes, I want to thank you for so many special memories, which are indelibly sealed in my heart. You added adventure to my childhood and always made me feel loved. You will always have a special place in my heart. - Forever, Sharon

I remember one year I had a Christmas party. All my Aunts came to it. I hired a Santa Claus to give Christmas gifts out to all the kids and to all the adults that came that night. Santa called everybody’s name out to give them a gift. When Aunt Mary’s name was called she jumped on Santa’s lap So fast. We could not get her off his lap. Aunt Mary was so funny and she was in her element. It was such a fun party especially for the adults. I thought the adults loved Santa more especially Aunt Mary. She had so much fun. I still can picture that night. Aunt Mary, Galen and I will miss you very much. Rest In Peace. We love you
