Mary R. Wojceichowski
She was everybody’s mom: with so much responsibility, she had to be tough and always available for those seeking her advice. Kids are what makes a family and moms are that glue that holds it all together: Mary never missed a game, kept them fed with meatballs and gravy, and hauled her family to the Outer Banks, Florida, Maine, LBI, and Seaside. Her home was decorated to perfection; no shock that she was a devotee of HGTV. If that wasn’t on she’d most likely be laughing at some trashy daytime talk shows or solving some murders on the ID channel. You can’t keep a girl from shopping: everywhere from Smithville to Target. Black Friday saw her on the move from dawn till close. Mary kept her mind sharp with Saduko, Candy Crush, and constant revisions to her 2-5 year financial plan. She taught math at Hurffville Elementary School for a brief 36 years but found her real calling as a grandmother: lots of hugs, books, lunches, and Where’s Waldo.
She’d met a guy named Neil at a family wedding. They’d share a 39 year marriage blessed by children: Neil (Kelly), Michael (Lauren) and Nikki (Colby) and a granddaughter, Dani. She is survived by her sisters, Theresa (Bill), Florence (Thomas), and Kathleen (Michael); her father, Henry DeSanta and mother in law, Norma Wojceichowski (Berger); her brother in law, John Wojceichowski and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
