Mary Pacyna

M ary Pacyna passed away on Sunday, Dec. 26, 2010, at the Community Hospice of Albany.

Mary was born in Middle Granville on June 1, the daughter of Patrick and Mary (Fennell) Kelly. She was one of 16 siblings.

Mary grew up in Middle Granville. For a time during World War II she moved to Colorado to live on a military base, being a military wife. She returned to Middle Granville where she lived in the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church Rectory. She lovingly cared for the rectory and the church she had grown up attending.  Mary was a member of the Altar and Rosary Society at Our Lady of Mount Carmel.  She lived there for 11 years (1961-1972), at which time they moved to Schenectady. Mary was employed at General Electric until her retirement in the early 1980s. After she moved to Schenectady she was a communicant of St. John the Evangelist for many years. She enjoyed playing bingo. When she became a resident at the Good Samaritan Health Care facility she became known for her feisty personality.

Mary was predeceased by her husband, Adam Pacyna, her brothers, Ed, John, Martin, William, Timothy, Phil, Tom and Patrick (PJ) Kelly, and her sisters, Betty Duci, Anna Hughes, Catherine (Kitty Mae) Donovan, Josephine Keefe and Margaret Aquiar.

Mary is survived by her son, Dan Kelly of Albany; her brothers, Jim Kelly of Florida and Craig Kelly and his wife, Eleanor, of Middle Granville; as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, 23 Bulkley Ave., Granville, on Friday, Dec. 31, at 10 a.m. with the Rev. Joseph X. Arockiasamy officiating. Burial will be in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery.
