Mary was an administrative assistant at the department of Public Works in Kearny. Known as eveyone's Aunt Mae, she was the beloved lynchpin of her large Irish family. Although family and her Irish heritage were top in her heart, she loved her porch plants, her bowling league, Law and Order marathons, and the N.Y. Giants, who she watched at the edge of her seat every game, win or lose. Because of every amazing piece of her, she will be greatly missed.
Wife of the late John, she is survived by her daughters and their husbands Kathy and Bob Patton, Joan and Francis Baratta and Susan and Bill Hamilton. Sister of Ann Loretta Toussaint she is also survived by her grandchildren Colleen (Jason) Loud, Bart Carrique, Tara and James Hamilton and Francesca and Nicole Baratta and her great granddaughter Arianna Hamilton. She was predeceased by her daughter Therese C. Halleran.
