Mary Avsec


Mary drove for Kingsway Regional HS. She never turned down a sports run. Her love of watching sports started when her sons were in little league and never ended. She had four sons and never missed a game. Then came grandkids and they got the same attention. Mary in her quiet manner cheered on all the students even ones not related to her. The school bus runs were her form of a “bus man’s holiday”. When she drove Mary was never in a rush, a stop for ice cream could always happen. When her kids were no longer active in sports she became a volunteer at Phillies games giving out freebies…after all she was forever a fan. It was a fact do not call between 7 and 8 pm that was Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune time.
Retirement opened the door to vacations with other KRHS retired drivers. There were cruises and bus tours. But the trips to Alaska and Hawaii were her favorites.
She is survived by her sons; Robert (Wilma), Tim (Diane), Steve (Margo), and Chris (Katie), 10 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, and 1 great great granddaughter whose games Mary will watch from above.
Come celebrate 77 encouraging years Tuesday from 6 to 8 pm at Daley Life Celebration Studio and on Wednesday from 10 am with hugs and memories service at 11 am.
In lieu of flowers donations to either Wounded Warriors,, or the American Cancer Society, ‎ will be appreciated.

    I knew Mary all the years she drove for Kingsway as I taught at Kingsway for a long time. I certainly knew her sons and her grandson Danny who graduated in June 2013 when I retired. Mary was so well known around the Swedesboro area. My very sincere sympathy to Mary’s family and her friends.

    During Mom”s service I was unable to speak the works that were running through my mind. After all how do you put into words a lifetime of Mom’s love for her children. To my Mom, the women who taught us right, and didn’t accept wrong, and stood by my side thru the roughest times in my life. To my Mom, who was there for my girls when we needed her the most. To my Mom, there are not enough words to thank you for the years of joy you have given me. I will miss you around the house and being in my life, but you will forever be my Mom, and for that I thank God. I love you and Miss you.
