Mary was born in Drifton, Pennsylvania as one of 8 children and came to Philadelphia at the age of 7. She attended Overbrook School for the Blind, where she graduated in 1949. After graduating she worked for Temple University as a switchboard operator.

While attending Overbrook she met Robert Frack who she married on July 21st, 1951. They had three daughters together.

Mary was a classic Italian cook and baker who was well known for nut bread, meatballs, chicken, and delicious desserts she made for her family. People couldn’t wait to attend family gatherings and her yearly Christmas party to taste her food. She made sure everyone went home with that nut bread.

Aside from cooking, Mary enjoyed crocheting and sewing. She made sweaters and clothing for her grandchildren.

She was also a member of a bowling league with Robert for the blind as well as St. William’s Bowling Team.

In her later years she developed a love for bingo and water aerobics.

She had boundless love for her grandchildren and great grandchildren, always calling to check in and see how they were doing. She gave them plenty of advice, passing on her resilience, wisdom, and of course food.
