When Pangbourne Electric completed the electrical construction of the Vultee facility, Mary was hired by Consolidated Vultee Aircraft to continue to work in their payroll dept. for 5 years during WWII. Later, after raising her children, she was employed for many years as a Credit Investigator for several large department stores in the Allentown area.  Mary was a long time member of St. John the Baptist Church in Northampton, PA.  Mary was a wonderfully kind and loving person who was loved and will be greatly missed by all.
