Mary loved her home, music, the changing of seasons, and nature; but most of all spending time with her family. Everyone she met or talked with was lifted by her positive inspiration and a sense of calmness and peace. People always remarked that she was so sweet and always found the good in everyone. She spread her joy with a contagious laugh that was enjoyed by all. Her sons and daughters will forever be grateful for her love, kindness, and generous spirit.

Born in Oxford, she was the daughter of the late William and Catherine McHugh Morrison. Besides her husband and parents, she was predeceased by three brothers, five sisters and four grandsons.

Survivors include her seven children, Sherry Rowell and her husband Jack, of Chadds Ford; Barry of Landenberg; Joseph and his wife Cindy, of West Grove; April Ward and her husband Lew, of Bear, Del.; Mark and his wife Lisa, of Oxford, Julie Porter and her husband Rob, of New London, Janine Cordivano and her husband Philip, of Oxford; and 18 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Dorothy Ziegler, of Oxford.
