Mary Frawley Ring passed away on July 28 at Charlestown Retirement Community in Baltimore, MD.  She was born in Newark, NJ and grew up in Bloomfield, daughter of the late Robert James Frawley and Mary Bearens Frawley. Mary graduated from Mount St. Dominic Academy, Caldwell and The College of St. Elizabeth in Convent Station, Morristown NJ.

Mary loved hosting holiday and family gatherings for which she cooked gourmet meals and made every occasion special. She enjoyed visiting her 15 grandchildren Jansen, Brison, Anthony, Victoria, Molly, Natalie, Alex, Annie, Connor, Emily, Isabella, Jameson, Abby, Piper and Noah and sharing in their lives, especially during summer vacations in her home in Wellfleet.
