All my love to all of the McGoldricks .Mary was a beautiful fun complicated woman and my dear friend. She and I always belly laughed together as we planned all sorts of shennanigans. I am sure that she and Jim are dancing together again in Heaven. Marian

So sad to hear of Mary’s passing. I remember her well as we grew up around the block from the McGoldrick family. She was always kind and sweet and had a big smile to share with everyone. God bless the rest of the family and comfort you at this time.
