Lisa, July 28, 2017 Rest in peace Mary our prayers are with you and family Daniel Hornick, June 29, 2017 I love you, Mary. Amy Dufallo, June 21, 2017 I would like to express my deepest sympathy to Mary's family. I was one of the hundreds of lucky people who got to work closely with Mary over the years. She was a fantastic person, caring, considerate and encouraging but would give me the nudges and shoves when needed. Her interests in people was genuine caring about the little things and paid special attention to my family hanging the Christmas card pictures on her wall. She was so proud of her family, sharing the accomplishments and existing things that John, Christopher and Beth's lives, especially the football games, vacations and trips to TX. The move to TX was a big thing for her, she was planning it for years, not only would she get to see Chris and Beth more but she also wouldn't have to drive in the snow (especially down the driveway into the garage). Mary touched so many people's lives, in so many ways, she will be missed but always remembered. Michael McDevitt and Family, June 21, 2017 Mary and I worked together back to my Pharmanet's days. She was an exceptional person. I feel the void that she is no longer with us. I will always remember you, Mary. My sincere condolences to the family. Alberta Viknyansky, June 21, 2017 My prayers are with the family during this time. I worked with Mary for many years and got a chance to know her. She's a force that will be missed. Blessings to you and yours. Valerie S Williams, June 21, 2017 Dear Baldovsky Family, I was sorry to hear of Mary's passing. We were co-workers at PharmaNet in Princeton, NJ. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Sorrowfully submitted, Cheryl Velazquez Cheryl Velazquez, June 21, 2017 At the rising sun and at its going down we remember them. At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter we remember them. At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring we remember them. At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer we remember them. At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of the autumn we remember them. At the beginning of the year and when it ends we remember them. As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us. As we remember them. When we are weary and in need of strength we remember them. When we are lost and sick at heart we remember them. When we have decisions that are difficult to make we remember them. When we have joy we crave to share we remember them. When we have achievements that are based on theirs we remember them. For as long as we live, they too will live, For they are now a part of us, as we remember them. ...from the Reform Judaism Prayer Book
Jeannette Reed, June 20, 2017 I would like to express my condolences to Mary's family. I was fortunate to have worked with Mary at Scirex and Pharmanet. She was a wonderful manager and always supportive to her team. Mary could recognize your strengths and was always encouraging. I enjoyed her sense of humor, she always would talk about her family with so much love and she looked forward to retireing in Texas with her son Christopher and daughter in law Beth, who she loved like a daughter. She would speak about how much she enjoyed her cruises with John and always looked forward to planning the next cruise. May the memories of Mary be eternal to your family. Karen Schmidt, June 20, 2017 Mary was a wonderful person and I will never forget her. She was my boss for over 10 years and got me to where I am today. She was so generous and would do anything for you. I am so sorry for your loss. Mary loved her family so much and she always talked about all of you. Christopher and Beth I am so glad that you got to spend more time with her since they moved to Texas a few years ago. I know this must be devastating for all of you and you will be in my prayers. Take care of each other!! Susan Golebiewski, June 20, 2017 Mary was a special neighbor/friend on Kenwood Drive in Erial NJ many years ago and remained a friend mainly communicating via email and FB in recent years. Mary was kind, generous and someone who would be there if you needed her. We had many wonderful times together as we were raising our children. Dyann Paoline (Dee), June 19, 2017 It is with heavy heart to say goodbye. I always loved talking with you as you would keep it real like I do which is so refreshing.... You were funny, wise, and a mentor. Being a parent, I actually think of you at times and remember how much you would talk about Christophr and how much you adored him... I mean really adore him! Of course all parents would say that, but I think there are some that just feel a little bit more... I find myself one of those individuals and always thought of you as well because you were this way. I really admired that. I also will always remember you bought my boys their first pair of Nike sneakers.... they were so little for so long and couldn't wear them till they were like 2 years old... I pray for your family for peace eventually. The world has lost a great person...and you will be sadly missed.
Alexis Gianelos, June 19, 2017 Mary It was a pleasure knowing you. Although I was only a work friend, you always had great insight and shared wonderful stories of your family. My prayers and thoughts go out to your family. With loving thoughts, Traci Traci Locke, June 19, 2017 My dear sweet friend. Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for your passing. You were a very special person both inside and out. I will never forget your loving and sympathetic ways and the love you had for your husband and your son. God has surely welcomed you to glory. One day I will see you again. Sheila C. Steele, June 19, 2017
