For Mary family always came first. She loved her son, enjoying many trips to the zoo, museums, and parks. He was her top priority, but she loved her nieces and nephews just as much. Mary was a sentimental soul: she held on to many a trinket acquired over the years just to relive memories of days gone by. She had an eclectic ear when it came to music: she dabbled in just about every genre. And her love of art carried over to her body. Mary sported many a tattoo. A cat couldn’t do better than to arrive on her doorstep; she adored them. And she was brave enough to root for the Patriots while living in the Philly area and she enjoyed a little camping.
She is survived by her son: Andrew; her mother, Kathy; her father, Robert (Linda) Toland; her siblings, Rich (Jamie) Stoer, Christine Rodney) Becker, Stephanie (Shawn) Tocco, and Bobby Toland; her Aunt Vicki and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
