WHITEFIELD, NH – After a long illness, Mary F. Daly passed away on September 12, 2020 at the Morrison Nursing Home in Whitefield, NH.

Mary was born in the Bronx, NY on June 23, 1942, a daughter to William and Agnes (Crawford) Fitzpatrick. She graduated from St. Agnes High School on Long Island in 1960, and from St. Bonaventure University in Orlean, New York in 1964 with a BA degree in English.

On June 12, 1971, she married James Daly in Wappinger Falls, NY.

In September 1971, Mary transferred to marketing/sales organization of IBM, but after a few years transferred back to the large-systems software organization where she had several management, staff, and planning assignments. Mary retired from IBM in 1997.

Between 1998 and 2004, Mary worked as a contract employee for corporations like Fidelity and IBM, doing systems programming and planning, and financial planning.
