1928 Mary 2019

Mary Quay

February 5, 1928 — April 25, 2019


Mary A.(Ronto) Quay, 91, of Phoenixville, PA entered into eternal rest on April 25, 2019 at home, surrounded by her family. She was born on February 5, 1928 in Phoenixville to the late Charles and Elizabeth (Szlocy) Ronto. She attended John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls’ High School and shortly thereafter married Robert C. Quay, Sr. in November of 1946 after he returned home from WWII. Robert preceded her in death in 2013. They shared 66 years of marriage and together raised 9 children.
Mary possessed a love of swimming and diving—she was an arthritis aquatics instructor at the Phoenixville YMCA and won multiple gold medals in swimming at the Chester County Senior Games. She was also active at the YMCA with the Skate-A-Thon fundraiser and the child care center.  Mary enjoyed fishing, spending time in Rehoboth Beach, dancing, relaxing at the family cabin in Potter County, admiring her handsome male doctors, and cheering for her Phillies.

Mary is survived by six children, Patricia (Dennis) Stauffer, Jim Quay, Mary Ann Quay, Diane (Kim) Keeler, Ronald (Dee) Quay, and Lisa (Chris) Miller; a son-in-law, Maurice McCann; and a sister, Christine Greer. She was also a beloved “mom mom” to 22 grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren, and was expecting her first great great grandchild.

In addition to her husband, Mary had many family members waiting to welcome her at the pearly gates with open arms—two daughters, Roberta “Bobbie” McCann and Cheryl Griffith; a son, Robert C. Quay, Jr; four brothers, Charles, Jr., Joseph, Eugene, and Vince Ronto; four sisters, Margaret Putnam, Helen Steele, Betty Day, and Bertha Gradwell.
