Mary worked proudly as a registered nurse at the La Loma campus of Sun Health Senior Living in Litchfield Park, among other skilled nursing facilities. She celebrated her 10-year anniversary at La Loma in November 2017 and was a passionate advocate for, and superlative caregiver to, her patients.

Mary had a sharp mind, near-military steadfastness, keen sense of ethics, and unwavering compassion... garnering great respect among her patients, peers, superiors, friends, and family. She was a nurse's nurse.
