Born in Barnesboro, Pennsylvania, Mary was raised in New Brunswick and graduated from New Brunswick High School. In 1951, she married Anthony Serinese and they raised their four children in their home in East Windsor. She was a wonderful person who was light-hearted, kind, caring, and always lit up a room with her radiant smile. Several years later in 1965, Mary and her husband co-founded The Vegetable Garden, now Timothy's Center for Gardening in Robbinsville, of which she was very proud.
Mary always enjoyed antiquing with her sisters and spending time at the Senior Center where she spent time with her dear friends. Above all else, she cherished her family whom she adored, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
