Mary LeRoy Obituary

Mary Diane LeRoy, 87, passed away surrounded by her family on September 24, 2023, at Seneca Hill Manor.

In her free time, she enjoyed baking, knitting, shopping at JCPenny's, and applying her favorite lipstick, Revlon's Gentleman Prefer Pink.

Surviving are her sister, Barbara (Dick) Coyer, sons, Tim (Kim) LeRoy and George LeRoy, grandchildren, Sydnie and Madison LeRoy, Michael LeRoy, and Carlos Shih - Garcia and many nieces, nephews, and good friends.

She was predeceased by the love of her life, George "Bunzy" LeRoy, her parents, John (Ike) and Nellie Sanford, her sister, Joan Slobe and her brother, Richard (Ike) Sanford.

The family would like to share their heartfelt thank-yous to Seneca Hill Manor, especially the staff on the second and third floors who made sure she was always comfortable, loved, and staying out of trouble.
