Mary was a lifelong resident of Kansas City, MO. She was a daughter to Luke and Frances O’Brien, youngest of ten children. She married Thomas Raimo on February 20, 1960, together they raised six children. Family was everything to Mary; she devoted her entire life around them. She brought that same dedication to her time as a caretaker. She touched each soul she cared for with her loving and giving spirit.
