Mary was a loving sister, aunt, great-aunt, great-great-aunt and a friend to many. She never met a stranger, and she was always willing to lend a helping hand. She retired from Jefferson Barracks VA Hospital after many years of dedicated service. Mary enjoyed the time she spent volunteering at Lewis & Clark Museum in Hartford, IL.

She is survived by her loving siblings, Kathleen Schildman of Granite City, IL and Robert Schildman Jr. of Granite City, IL; dear sister-in-law, Vauna Babcock-Schildman of Granite City, IL; many nieces, nephews, extended family, and wonderful friends.

In celebration of her life, a memorial service will be held at a later date.
