“Mary Borra”, “Aunt Mary” was kind she loved life and family. She was quiet but had an infectious laugh and loved to dance as she and Uncle Louie were square dancing champions known region wide. Sundays or any day of the week being with Aunt Mary meant spending time with her in gardens of wonderful vegetables and beautiful flowers likes Lupines and Lambs Ears, Gladiolus, and Daisy’s too. And if you were with her long enough you would get to eat something special like homemade pasta or chicken soup and Holidays were extra special with wonderful italian dishes for the celebration with family.
What Aunt Mary loved most was to sit on the porch with Uncle Louie and watch the day go by.
A Memorial Mass celebrating her life will be announced at a later date. Memories of Mary may be shared with her family and friends at www.haughey-woodfuneralhome.com
