She married Robert McKeon in 1952 and raised MaryEllen, Robert, Timothy, Noreen, Michael and Patrick in the Bronx, Queens and Crestwood, and moved to Yorktown in 2018.
Mary was a fiercely independent, savvy and capable woman living on her own to the time of her death. She enjoyed playing bridge, was a voracious reader, and a devote Catholic. She had a brilliant sense of humor, a quick and generous smile, and was always the life of the party. A true matriarch, Mary loved and enjoyed her family above all else and never missed an opportunity to regale all with cherished memories.
