She was a native of Orangeburg, South Carolina and moved to Columbia to attend Droughton Business College as a young woman. She spent most of her life in Columbia where she raised her family. She worked with her husband, Lawrence F. Accordini to build A & P Electric Service, Inc., which has served the Columbia area for fifty-one years.

Don, Joanne, Vicki and Grandchildren:
My thought and prayers are with you all. I know "Ack", Mama and Daddy welcomed her with open arms. They always had so much fun together.
It's so hard to let them go even though, we know they are in a better place.
Cherish all the wonderful memories. No can ever take these away.

Don, I remember your Mother well. I was working there around the time she had to retire. She was a very sweet woman. I know you will miss her. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during this most difficult time.

To JoAnn and the Chastain family, Don, Vicki and the Accordini Family;

I was sorry to hear about the passing of Aunt Mary. What a life and what a dedicated family to care for her in her time of need. The memories are many - going to their home in W Cola and Uncle Ack letting Country and the boys drive around the pond on the golf cart. The Sister Lunches - were such a treat and how Mama would save the date on her calendar for sister time. What a family!! Then going to the lake with Aunt Helen, Uncle Jack, Aunt Mary, and Uncle Ack for them to go out and fish at night. It was always a time with laughter and love. Her suffering is no more and our Savior has welcomed her home to her heavenly family. I am sure Uncle Ack was there to kiss and hug her tight, her parents welcomed her and then the sisters and brothers were in line next. I am sorry that I can't be there today, but please know that you are in our thoughts. Daddy will do his best to be there. We send you our love, prayers, and thoughts.

We were privileged to have known Mary briefly, mainly as Cameron's grandma. We are grateful for her obvious love for her family and for her influence in Cameron's and Tricia's lives.
