Born in Massena, to James A. Hunter and Mary E. Monck, Mary attended North Lawrence High School. After schooling, she was employed at the Alcoa Plant in Massena during WWII. She then worked at W. T. Grants as a floor technician and cashier. She finished her career at Lawrence Avenue Elementary School in Potsdam as a cashier.

In 1945 she met the love of her life, Harrison J. Peck Jr. They married in 1950 at the Methodist Church in Potsdam, NY and had 59 years of wedded bliss. They enjoyed making crafts together and having summer-long garage sales.

Mary was predeceased by her parents; seven sisters and five brothers; her husband, Harrison; her daughter, Connie McCarthy; and her granddaughter, Debbie Costa.

She is survived by her granddaughter, Michele Harrington (Rochester); her son in law, David McCarthy (Hannawa Falls); two great grandchildren, David Costa (Syracuse) and Lauren Costa (Rochester); and one great-great grandson, Jaxson Costa (Syracuse).

She is also survived by her goddaughter Kelly, husband Trevor D’Amour, their daughter Alex Sochia; and several nieces and nephews. Also a very special niece, Melinda Chase and her husband Richard Chase and their two daughters, Addison and Makenna, whom she loved very much.

A heartfelt thank you to family and friends that were near and dear to her that took the time out of their busy lives, to spend quality time with her, to take her to lunch, to run her errands and to be there when she needed you most. Much love to you all.
