Born in Trenton, NJ, daughter of the late Thomas and Annie (Feeney) Martin, she lived in Yardley for the past 55 years.

Mary was a dedicated homemaker and also managed the accounting for Yardley Hardware, a business she owned with her husband Joe. After her husband's death in 1987, she continued to successfully manage their multiple business properties. As a young woman, she got her start in business as a manager and buyer at Yards Department Store in Trenton, NJ.

As the family matriarch, she adored spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She loved entertaining for holidays, and was known for her after church Sunday breakfast which included her famous scrambled eggs. She had a wonderful sense of humor and always saw the funny side of life. She enjoyed playing silly games with her great-grandchildren and stocked her home with candy and special treats for them.

Mary was involved in the local community and was a long time member of the Martha Washington Garden Club and St. Ignatius Parish. She cherished her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and loved her pets, particularly her beloved dog, Hermetta. Her love of animals extended to her children's dogs, which were welcome at her home at any time.
