Mary Margaret (McCready) Hungerford

ROCHESTER - Mary Hungerford passed peacefully Tuesday (Feb. 6, 2024), with her family at her side. She was a resident of St. Ann's Community, Rochester.

Mary is survived by her son, James (Kathy); daughters Mary Ann Hungerford and Kathryn Casey; and her son-in-law Tom Casey, special to her for his frequent visits and comedic storytelling. In addition to her children, Mary is survived by her grandchildren, Mary Teague, Katie (Patrick) Commins, Sean Hungerford and Ali (Eric) Beatty; seven great-grandchildren, Finn, Dylan and Cora Teague and Grace, Henry, Sophia and Robert Commins; as well as her niece and nephews, Ann, Tom and Rob Spearing.

Mary was predeceased by her husband, Thomas E. Hungerford in 2003; her mother, Gertrude Connell McCready, and father, James L. McCready; sisters, Gertrude McKendry, Madelyn Spearing and Kate Donnelly; and brothers, John, Lawrence and James.

Mary was raised in Olean. She graduated from Olean High School in 1945 and Rochester Business Institute in 1947.

In Olean, she worked as a telephone operator and at the DEC, before her marriage to Thomas E. Hungerford in 1950 at St. John's Roman Catholic Church, Olean.

She lived in Bolivar for the next 65 years where she was a member of St. Mary's Church and its Altar Society.

Mary had an infectious laugh that could be heard across the room. Born two days after St. Patrick's Day, she was proud of her Irish heritage.

A Memorial Mass will be held on Tuesday, June 25, 2024 at 11:00 A.M. at St. Mary's Church, 111 Wellsville Street, Bolivar at 11:00 A.M.
