Mary Elizabeth Costello of Newfane NY: Passed away on November 27, 2015 surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Chicago, IL on January 15th, 1923 to Martin and Edith (Erickson) Swanson.  Mary is predeceased by her husband, James Harold.  She was a true matriarch and her family was her greatest treasure. Her legacy will carry on with her children Carolyn (Jerry) Leibring, Brian (Laurie) Costello, Patricia (Donald) Campbell and her grandchildren Eric (Pam) Leibring, Danielle (Josh) Pomeroy, Jennifer (Brian) Stevens, Erin Costello, Michael Costello, Ian (Lindsey) Campbell, Lindsay Campbell (Scott Schiffman), Allison (Vinny) Granata and seven great grandchildren. Mary was predeceased by her brothers Paul and Frederick Swanson and is survived by her sister and best friend, Patricia Koger and sister-in-law Bert Swanson as well as many nieces and nephews.

Mary was one of the first employees at Inter-Community Memorial Hospital, retiring in 1985 as the medical record librarian. She was an avid Bridge and Scrabble player and had a passion for music which included her love of playing the piano, organ, and autoharp, singing with the Sweet Adelines, and directing a men’s chorus. Her love of music is clearly carried on through her family singing at every opportunity possible.

Mary will always be remembered for her beautiful smile, kind spirit, and infectious laugh.

Friends and family may call Monday November 30th 4-7pm at Rutland-Corwin Funeral Home, 2670 N Main St, Newfane. A Celebration of her Life will be held on Tuesday December 1st at 10am at St Brendan on the Lake (formerly St. Charles Borromeo Church)  5972 Main Street, Olcott, burial immediately following. Those wishing may donate to The Multiple Sclerosis Society,, 4245 Union Rd., Ste 108, Buffalo.
