She volunteered at St. Joseph’s faithfully, especially during the holidays, to help decorate the church whenever asked. She was a devout Catholic who was known for daily rosary. She married the love of her life, Paul Willette, in July 1954, and together they shared 67 years of marriage. Together they enjoyed traveling, cruises, and bus trips with the Greenwich Senior Citizen’s Club. She was known for bringing home stories and trinkets from her trips to share with co-workers and friends. Mary also enjoyed, cooking, yardwork, and spending time with her husband. Mary will be missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her husband Paul Willette of Greenwich, her godson David Little of Queensbury and her dear friend Reverend David Kelley.
