Mary graduated high school from Lourdette Academy of Wallace, Idaho in 1959.
She arrived in Spokane, WA in 1961 where she worked at Holy Family Nursing Home as a nurse’s aide until 1965.
She then went to work at Deaconess Hospital in 1965 and retired from there in 1997.
She met the love of her life in 1978 and she married Robert Shelton on July 6, 1979.
Robert and Mary were happily married for 33 years, living in Spokane.
Mary is preceded in death by her parents, Carmine in 1962 and Monica (Lippa) in 1975 and her only sibling, brother Loren Lippa in 2008.
Mary is survived by her loving husband Robert Shelton of 33 years; and many friends and family and our beloved dog Sammy.
There will not be a memorial service as these were Mary’s wishes.
No flowers please.
Please give to Hospice and Hospice House or to the charity of your choice in remembrance of Mary.
She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
