As well as several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Mary was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Samuel S. Shaffer in 2018; a son, Samuel L. Shaffer in 2001; two brothers: Lynn and Gene Mauk.

Services will be private and at the convenience of the family, with the Rev. James Swanson, pastor, Pleasant Community Church, officiating.

Burial will be in the Pine Grove Cemetery, Russell, Pa.

The family suggests memorial donations be made to Hospice of Warren County, One Main Street, Warren, PA, 16365.
