Mary Casella loved being a wife, mother and grandmother. She was the epitome of home maker and her home in Warrendale was the place where everyone gathered for the holiday's and celebrations. She beautifully decorated both inside and out to celebrate all the festive occasions. With a door always open to family and friends she always had a closet with little gifts for those who stopped by for a visit. Cakes were decorated masterfully with love and detail and as a talented seamstress she made many identical outfits for her daughters as they grew up.

Family excursions to the beach for the day or the annual family vacations were simple but treasured times and wonderful memories. An active Brownie mother she also volunteered countless hours at the Fitzgerald School in the Warrendale neighborhood of Waltham. Mary enjoyed tennis and playing in the couples bowling league at the Wal-Lex in Waltham. She is going to be remembered by her family and friends as one of those really, really special people.
