Mary Agnes Sadler, 95, of Lawrenceville, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at St. Joseph’s Skilled Nursing Center, Lawrenceville.

Born in Manhattan, Mary resided in New York City for most of the first thirty-five years of her life.  At about Age 10, Mary lived for four years with her mother, maternal grandparents, and younger siblings in Aughnagarron, County Longford, Ireland, following the death of her 42 year-old father, NYFD’s William Henry.  Returning to Brooklyn, NY as a young teenager, she met and later married her beloved husband, Jack, in 1942.  She moved first to Hillside in 1956 and then to Piscataway, NJ in 1966 with Jack to raise her family.  Mary was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, and friend who will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.  Some of her hobbies included reading, sewing, dancing (jitterbug and peabody), and listening to music.
