Mary was born to Edward and Winifred Curley on October 13, 1934 in San Francisco. She graduated from Notre Dame HS in San Francisco in 1952 attended City College. In May of 1958 Mary married the late George “Bud” Worrall. After several years of living in San Francisco with their four children, Mary and Bud pulled up stakes and headed to the peninsula and settled in Burlingame. There, Mary became a parishioner at Our Lady of Angels where her children attended elementary school. It is also where she formed close bonds with fellow parishioners who became lifelong friends. As her children grew older, Mary enjoyed her sales position at the quaint clothing boutique, Robert Gates, in Burlingame. There she formed close friendships with her coworkers. Mary enjoyed passing time tending to her garden, seeing her grandchildren, and weekly Sunday dinners at her home with her family. In Mary and Bud’s retirement years, they were often traveling with their close circle of friends here and abroad.
Mary is survived by her four children; Patti, Kathy, Marc (Sue), and Teresa (Brent). Mary will be remembered by her five grandchildren: Sean, Nick, Jessie, Tommy, and Sarah. She is also survived by her nephew Tom Healy. Mary was predeceased by her husband George Worrall in 2007 and her only sibling, Patricia Healy in 2008.
