Beloved wife of the late Paul J., proud mother of Paul and James (Kathy); dear sister of Josephine Knackstedt, the late Sue Fox, John Gurrieri, and Carmen Gurrieri.

Mary enjoyed her last twelve years in Bloomingdale close to her family. She passed on her love of family and cooking by teaching the next generations her special pasta sauce with meatballs, pizzelles, pizza bread, kolacky’s and homemade jelly. As we carry on these traditions, Mom will always be remembered with love as we gather with our families.
