Mary N. Gartland, age 87 , a resident of the Villa St. Benedict community in Lisle, IL and a former longtime resident of Chicago, passed away peacefully on October 19, 2018 at Villa St. Benedict surrounded by her loving family.

She was a devout Catholic and a longtime member of Our Lady of the Snows Parish in Chicago and most recently at Sacred Heart Monastery Chapel in Lisle. Throughout her life she gave selflessly of her time and talents to numerous church and Catholic school activities.

Mary loved performing Irish dances and even taught four generations of family and friends how to Irish dance as well! She will be remembered for being the ultimate hostess of parties and gatherings, rooting on her dear Chicago Cubs, performing in community productions, giving her time to fund raisers, being a dear friend to many, but most of all being the best mother, grandmother and great grandmother anyone could ask for. She will be deeply missed.
