  1. Linda, Alice, Dan & Bob,

    We send our love, condolences and prayers to you and your family. We will miss your mother who was the sweetest and nicest next door neighbor. The 50+ year friendship between our mothers will always be cherished. She will be missed. Rest in God’s eternal peace Mrs. Morphet.

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss. Mary was a wonderful mother, grandmother and friend. I feel so blessed to have been able to know her. She always had a story and it was delivered with such humor. She was such a beautiful soul in every way. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. Let your wonderful memories help guide you through this difficult time.

  3. I worked with Mary for many years in the Greece school system and will always remember her gentle sense of humor, wonderful smile and kindness that she brought to all who knew her. Rest in peace. Don Dowling

  4. Mary and I worked together at Hoover Drive Middle School. I was also blessed to see her every year at a Christmas Breakfast that a group of women from Hoover Drive Middle School continued to hold for almost 40 years! She never missed it and was always a delight and usually the life of the party! She was such a lovely person! She will be missed!

  5. My sincere sympathy to Mary’s family. I remember stories that my dad, Louis Scarciotta, would tell me of he & Mary growing up together & going to St. Monica’s school. When I joined the Park Ridge Auxiliary at Unity Hospital I met Mary through mutual friends. She always was so very pleasant & loved talking about when she & my dad were friends. May your memories give you comfort in the days ahead.
