Mary Catherine Olden was born to the late Thomas Meaney and Mary Ellen Meaney (nee Devine) in Philadelphia, PA.
Her mother passed when she was 2 years old, but with the help from family, she was raised between homes. Ellenor Tait and Patrica Barsello were major role models in Mary's upbringing.
When Mary was 17, her father passed away. She ended up moving to the shore house he'd built with his mother. This is where she began her beautiful family.
While starting her family, she became an L.P.N. and was a long-time employee of the Woodbine State School. She made many wonderful friends and even had a "partner-in-crime" at work: Dawn Adams-Tisq.
She is predeceased by 4 children: Theresa, Matthew, Bernadette and Mary Olden.
Mary leaves behind a loving husband, John P. Olden, 2 daughters, Heather (Tom) Messick, Angela (Terry) Horner, 4 grandchildren: Christopher Messick, Mickela (Shawn) Messick-Chester, Summer Rain Chester and Alyssa Cassidy, and 1 great grandson, Shawn Wing Jr.
