All these experiences shaped her perspective on life and focus on family. Family and friends turned to Mary for life advice during challenging times.

Mary married Edward Hitchens and had six children, in addition to two children from her previous marriage.
Mary is survived by her sons Donald Casantini of Springfield, Pennsylvania, Walter Hitchens and wife Cindy of Muhlenberg, Pennsylvania, Robert Hitchens and wife Carol of Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, and daughters Margaret Ann Aul of Reading, Pennsylvania, Lillian Sensenig and husband Robert of The Villages Florida, Elizabeth Hughes and husband Robert of Womelsdorf, Pennsylvania, Nancy Frymoyer and husband William of Cross, South Carolina, and numerous grand and great,g and great-great grandchildren and extended family.
