Mary Katherine Strange  "Marykay" 

Webster:  Went to the Jamboree in Heaven on Friday, February 28, 2020 at the age of 57 as her loving family was by her side.  She was greeted by her Father Ronald E. Strange and Grandparents Frank A. Strange Jr. and Mary Gertrude Strange. She is survived by her Mother, Frances Strange;  her five Sisters that adored her; Elaine (Todd) Levan, Tracey Strange (Nick), Veronica (John) Leone, Frances (Chuck) Scorsone and Ann Marie Strange. She also leaves behind Aunts and Uncles, many Nieces and Nephews, Great Nieces and Nephews, countless Cousins and Friends and her Cobblestone Arts Center Family.

Marykay loved her Family, Dancing, Music, Coffee and Elvis Presley.  You could find her in the Lunch Room Cafe at Cobblestone singing while she was setting up for lunchtime. She was the Lunch Lady and will be missed by everyone who worked, volunteered and attended classes there. She loved spending time with her family. She would frequent restaurants and seek out the best cheeseburger on the menu. She was determined that she was going to marry Elvis so we would attend Elvis impersonator shows but Elvis was already married.  She would be the first one on the dance floor and the last one off of it every time she went with Dad when he played at the Maple Tree Inn. She was loved by everyone who met her and she remembered everyone she met. She would scribe "I Love You" notes to her most beloved. Her funny phrases and witty humor have made us laugh and will carry on for the rest of our lives.

What's Mary gonna do? She's going to Dance! She's going to Sing!  

She was so loved and will be missed so much by everyone who knew her.
