Mary Lucy Caruso, a life-long resident of the Rivertowns, passed away on Sunday, May 24, 2020 at the age of 67. Born on May 15, 1953 in Dobbs Ferry, Mary and her family moved to Hastings when she was a young girl. After graduating Hastings High School, Mary received her Associate Degree from Elizabeth Seton College and her Bachelor of Arts in Business/Commerce from Pace University. Many may remember Mary from the coffee business at the Dobbs Ferry Train Station back in the early 80’s. She would set up for the morning rush and then take the train into New York City to her job as a Senior Programmer Analyst at Sony Music. During her career in systems analysis, she worked for Kraft Foods, TIAA-CREF, and PepsiCo. Most recently Mary worked as a Team Member at JoAnn-Fabric & Crafts. It was her love of reading and interest in quilting that brought Mary much happiness at the Dobbs Ferry Library. In 2003, Mary became the vice president of the Friends of the Library and in 2005, was elected as the President of the Friends of the Library. During her time as president, the Library Endowment was established, which continues today. She was on the Friends of the Library Quilting Committee for several years before joining the quilting group at the Dobbs Ferry Historical Society. Mary loved dogs and had adopted her dog, Sadie from the North Shore Animal League. Mary and Sadie were often seen walking on the Croton Aqueduct. Mary was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Lucy Cocciardi. She is survived by her sister Connie Cocciardi Bannon, brother-in-law James W. Bannon, Jr., and her nephew and niece, Jason and Colleen Bannon. A celebration of Mary’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the North Shore Animal League online at www.animalleague.org or to the Friends of the Dobbs Ferry Library online at www.dflfriends.org.
