Mary was born on May 26, 1932 in Waterbury, CT, the daughter of the late John McGrath and Elizabeth (Horan) McGrath. She was educated in local schools and graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital School of Nursing. She then received her Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Connecticut. Mary worked her entire career at St. Mary’s Hospital, for many years in the Maternity Department and then as a Nursing Supervisor until her retirement. Mary was a wonderful nurse and a caring and compassionate person. Mary enjoyed traveling to Maine and Cape Cod with her family and friends.
