Mary graduated from East High School and her classmates voted for her to win numerous awards.

Mary was employed for Ohio Edison/First Energy for over 44 years and retired in December 1988 as a customer accounting specialist.

Mary had three passions throughout her life, which were her family, fashion, especially children’s clothing and baking pies and cakes from scratch. She always made her family her top priority and loved spending time with them. She was extremely generous and buying clothing for her siblings, nieces, nephews and Godchildren brought so much joy to her. She also was a perfectionist and great baker. Her pies and cakes were the highpoint of many birthday and holidays. Everyone will miss her famous German chocolate and lemon cakes.

Mary leaves behind to hold onto her memories her nephew, Dennis Hooper, with whom she made her home; her brother, Joseph Santangelo of Boardman, along with many loving nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
