She had been born in Detroit, Michigan, on May 24,1950, and was raised outside Boston; later moving with her family (father, John Joseph Cavanaugh and mother, Mary Gertrude Canavan Cavanaugh, older sister, Ann and younger brother, John Joseph Jr.) to Sunnyvale California in 1964.

She worked for a number of years for AT&T and later worked as an in home caregiver in California.

Mary loved the sea, making art and her treasured little VW bug. She was poor in things material and rich in her unselfish generosity. She loved life and at the same time struggled with depression her whole adult life. If there is a heaven, I believe she has been welcomed in. You will be missed sweet one. You will be thought of often and with great love.
