Mary L. Serdinak, 99, passed away Thursday, December 17, 2020.
Mary was born May 13, 1921 to the late Charles & Hildur Reid and was a lifelong area resident. She worked during WWII inspecting dirigibles. After raising a family, she became a nurse, working on an oncology floor and later at CYO Adult Day Care. Mary was an avid gardener, and she was a backyard birdwatcher. She was a selfless caregiver, never expecting anything in return. Mary especially loved watching Anne of Green Gables with her great-granddaughter Jess. She was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church.
In addition to her parents, Mary was preceded in death by her husband Emre in 2007; daughter Mary Dorka; and brothers Robert, James, & Charles Reid. She is survived by her sons Jeffrey (Donna), Gerald, & Tom (Star); grandchildren Denise (Greg) Mulhollen, Jennifer & Michael Dorka, and Noah & TJ Serdinak; great-grandchildren Dr. Jessica (David) Nassar, and Matthew & Kaylee Mulhollen; and great-great-grandchildren Emre & Corinne Nassar.
