 Mary worked for Watcon, Inc. for 32 years. Upon her retirement in 1999, her daughter, Mary Ellen, took over her position at Watcon, while Mary took on the role of Greatest Grandma Ever. She attended all the grandchildren's sporting and school events, went on cruises and trips with them, and cared for them while their parents traveled. Mary became an avid bicyclist, and went on a bike tour of Holland. She was a member of Civitan and the Power Source Prayer Group of St. Matthew's Parish, and volunteered her time by assisting at Communion Services at Southfield Village and St. Matthew's funeral luncheons. She was generous and kind, loved to debate and laugh, and had a sharp wit and sense of humor that will be missed! Her greatest legacy is her faith, which she modeled and instilled in others. She was a daily communicant and devoted to the Rosary. Mary was member of St. Matthew Cathedral, South Bend, for over 35 years.
