She was born on February 4, 1949 in Delaware to the late Paul H. and Georgia P. (Ward) Jumper. A graduate of Buckeye Valley High School in 1968 for the most part she was a lifelong Delaware County resident.
Mary was a STNA and worked as a nurse’s aide for Sunny Vee Nursing Home, Sarah Moore Home, and retired from Willowbrook at Delaware Run.

Skilled with the needle and thread, she spent countless hours crocheting and knitting numerous items for family and the homeless. Mary was always working on something, including flowers and reading books. Supportive and compassionate, she was a best friend to all. Considered an angel, she collected them as well. She looked forward to the Mother’s Day and Christmas Holidays, but treasured her family and spending time with them much more.
