Mary A. Bracy

By | Obituaries

WILTON — Mary A. Bracy, 78, passed away peacefully Wednesday, April 30 at Glendale Home with her daughter Jean by her side.

She was predeceased by her parents, Francis and Mary (Hamel) Durnin and her husband of 53 years, Walter G. Bracy.

Survivors include her daughters, Jean Hawthorne and her husband Robert Hawthorne, Jane Cebula and her husband Jim Cebula; three grandchildren, David and his wife Joanna, Danyelle and Nicole and four great-grandchildren: Tessa, Torri, Lainey and Lillie.

Mary was known to attend bingo with her husband a few nights a week, every week, at her local fire house and Knights of Columbus, and won most nights!

After her husband passed away, she kept attending as long as she could still drive herself. She loved feeding the wildlife in her back yard, including but not limited to, squirrels, chipmunks, deer and the occasional raccoon. She enjoyed teaching her bird Bubba new things to say to her daughters and grandchildren when they came to visit.

Mary and Walt went camping at Coldbrook Resort Campgrounds in Gansevoort every summer for the better part of 20 years. She made friends with everyone camping and went on walks every day to visit with them. Mary was loved by many for her free spirit and will be greatly missed by all her family and friends.

Services will be private at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make donations to The Community Hospice of Schenectady County, 1411 Union St., Schenectady, NY 12308  www.communityhospice.com.

Arrangements are under the direction of the William J. Burke & Sons/Bussing & Cunniff Funeral Homes of 628 North Broadway, Saratoga Springs.
