Mary Emma Coles, 87, went to be with her Lord on the morning of May 26, after declining health. She has been a resident of Pitman Manor for the past 7 years where she was quick with a smile and enduring conversation.
Mary grew up in Billingsport and later moved to Clarksboro where she lived for many years. In her career as a secretary she worked for several employers. She took pride in dressing professionally and doing her job well. Outside of work, Mary’s passions were reading and traveling. She enjoyed many trips with family and friends.
She enjoyed many holiday meals at her in-laws’ home in Bridgeport where she loved getting together with the extended family. Mary was always interested in what each one was doing.
Mary was a lifetime member of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. She loved her church and sang in the choir for many years.
Her smiling face and engaging personality will be missed.
Come and celebrate Mary’s life Monday, June 2 at Daley Life Celebration Studio in Swedesboro. Visitation will be at 1 pm and memorial service to follow at 2 pm.
The family requests that any donations be made to St. Paul’s UMC, P.O. Box 209, Paulsboro, N.J. 08066.
