Mary, the daughter of the late Evelyn Rewis Diehl and the late Warren Diehl, was born in Presque Isle, Maine.  She resided in Roselle, New Jersey for many years before settling in Union, New Jersey in 1985.

Mary was a medical secretary in the offices of Dr. Young Lee in Rahway, New Jersey for 1986 until her retirement in 2015.

Mary enjoyed reading and traveling, but her two biggest joys in life, were her devotion to her grandchildren and the NY Giants football team.  Mary carried a packet of pictures with her wherever she traveled.  That packet was filled to the brim with pictures of her grandchildren from their birth on through various occasions and even showed the simplest of life’s moments.  Mary’s grandchildren affectionately called her “guber” because she was always driving them everywhere & anywhere they need to be or wanted to go.  As for the NY Giants football team, Mary and her husband, Ed, were part of a group called the Giant Road Crew-Big Blue.  Every year, she & Ed would go to one away game of their choosing and join up with different people from this group, who shared their common interest and love of the game.  Mary even got to meet her lifelong Giant idol - Harry Carson & came away from that meeting with a signed jersey - one of her prized possessions, to this day.

In addition to her deceased parents, Mary was also predeceased by her brother James Diehl and her sister, Carol Ann Kolowitz.

Mary is survived by her husband of thirty-five years, Edward Cecehovsky; her daughter, Erin Orsini and her husband, Bryan; her three grandchildren, Liam Orsini, Bridie Orsini and Fintan Orsini and her three sisters, Margaret Diehl, Susan Villahermosa and Ruth Ekiert.
