Born in Syracuse on Friday, March 24, 1916, she was the daughter of Julia and Stephen Volsko. While a teen, she relocated to the Lyndhurst, New Jersey area where she met and later married Matthew Slowinski in May 1935. It was there that she raised their three children before moving to Florham Park, New Jersey and eventually moving to Denville, New Jersey. At that time, Mary began working at Interpace Corp. in Parsippany. In 1973, Mary and her husband relocated to Titusville, Florida, but not long after that they moved to Syracuse and then to Marshalls Creek, Pennsylvania, where Matthew died. So it was back to Syracuse again for Mary but not for too long as she left there for Titusville, Florida and in 2000, back again to Camillus. During all these years, Mary enjoyed sewing beautiful clothes for herself and granddaughters. She was an expert baker of specialty Christmas and Easter bread which she shared with family and friends. She enjoyed spending time with her family. She was a child care provider with the First Baptist Church of Titusville and Fairmount Community Church.
