Mary M. Lyons, 88, of Garnerville, NY gained her well-deserved angel wings on December 5, 2021. Mary was surrounded by love, listening to Irish music with her children by her side when the Lord called her home.

She married the late Thomas W. Lyons in 1954 at Sacred Heart Church in the Bronx and relocated to Garnerville in 1962.

Mary is survived by her 3 children: Geralynn of Garnerville, Thomas (Ta-G) of Austin, TX and Marian Ordonez (Marcus) of Los Lunas, NM. She is also survived by her adored grandchildren Donovan, Diego, Olivia, and Thomas, her brother John F. Henry, her great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and “The Circle People”.
