Mary was a very generous, caring, faithful and loving person. She had a great sense of humor and loved a good joke.

She was preceded in death by two brothers, Joseph and Francis, and five sisters, Agnes, in infancy, Victoria Galinskie, Anna Scheetz, Cecelia Napolitano and Gertrude Walburn.

A viewing will be held from 9 to 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Patrick Church, 331 W. Shamokin St., Trevorton, where a Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 10 with the Rev. Louis P. Ogden as celebrant.
