"Grandma Mary’s" name is synonymous with home, love, safety and hope. One of Fishtown’s finest, Mary’s big welcoming smile will live with us through its existence on a wall mural at the Lutheran Settlement home, her home away from home in her later years. Mary worked hard her entire life, was a fierce supporter of all of her family and had a faith and resilience that helped keep her large family strong and close.
