It is always difficult to say goodbye to someone we love and cherish.

Family and friends may say goodbye to their beloved Mary/mama.

She passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side on March 9, 2023 at 10:03 pm.  She had just celebrated her 82nd birthday and was home to celebrate her granddaughter Maggie’s 35th birthday.

Mary was born to the late Luther and Margaret Bitler.  She was preceded in death by her husband, Donald Shade, and her loving sister, LouAnn Bitler.

She is survived by her children Jane Elizabeth Serafine, Kathryn Ann Coleman (Evan) and William C. Serafine (Laura), plus five grandchildren: Maggie Knapp (Mike), Jonathan Watson (Daniell), Ian Serafine (Samantha), Nathan Serafine (Anna), Nicholas Serafine (Lexi) as well as two step-grandchildren, Mary Kelly (Alex) and  Joel Cornella (Jenna).

Mary was blessed with six great-grandchildren: Erin and Emille Knapp, Mason and Savannah Watson and Samaya Serafine as well as one step great-grandson, Ezra Kelly.

She was a very active member of the Eastern Stars in Florida and Pennsylvania as well as the Red Hatters and Prime Timers.

Mary was very involved in her belief in God and she attended church regularly at Edgewater Church of God and Radiant Light Church in Pennsylvania.

She was a retired nurse of many years in New York and was an active member for many years of the Conesus Lake Sportsman Club.

Friends and family may attend a memorial for our dear mother on Friday, March 31, 2023, in the chapel of Baldwin Brothers’ New Smyrna Beach location.  Visitation will be held from 4:00 pm until 5:00 pm with a service beginning at 5:00 pm.  Dinner will follow at the Masonic Hall in Edgewater, Florida.
