“So much soul for one little person.” Mary was an active volunteer and proud life member of the Caruso Club Ladies’ Auxiliary. Family was the cornerstone of Mary’s life. A hairdresser by training and an avid gardener, she was happiest when she was surrounded by family in her kitchen while she prepared food. Mary faced adversity with determination and was fiercely loyal to those she loved. Her greatest source of pride by far was her grandchildren. She has left an indelible mark on all those who knew her.
