Was a co-worker and friend of Mary’s for years. We go back some 60 years ago, to he early days of the Scranton Ski Club. In later years we had many conversations of our early days. One of my favorite stories from Mary Concerned how her mother suggested e become a social worker, which she did, and her disappointment when she found out she wouldn’t be working on a cruse ship. Classic MJP. Gods speed Mary, gone but never to be forgotten.
Michael L Price
Jerry as I read your condolence to my husband we both said the same thing as you, “Classic MJ”. Thank you for reminding us of her days in the Scranton Ski Club.
