Mary Talerico 83, of Conway, formerly of Stowe Rocks, was reunited with her husband and son in heaven on Saturday the 19th. She was surrounded by the most important thing in her life: her family.
Surviving Mary are her daughters, Debbie, Darla, and Holly Talerico, all of Conway, who were always her best friends: loving daughter in law Michele VanKirk, honorary son in law Charles Price, 7 beautiful grandchildren Tara (Julian), Brandi (Scott), Michael (Sam) Brandon (Kim), Nicholas, Brittany, and Cameron; 6 precious great grandchildren Gionni, Adalyn, Allison, Luca, Logan, and Silas: her companion of ten years, Mario Lucente of Baden, who never left her side; three siblings Alice Burt, Carol Rowe, and Charles Ford who gave her a lifetime of laughs and memories.
Waiting for her in heaven were her husband, Albert, her son Samuel Talerico, whom she has been missing for 60 years. She will also be met by sisters, Mercedes Liguori and Dorothy Lebeck as well as her brother Joseph Ford.
Mary and her husband built the sixth house in Conway and put down roots that kept her family there to this day. She greeted the community at Talerico’s Restaurant in Nothern Lights Shopping Center, where you would never find her without her heels on. She raised her family on coffee, hard work, and love.
The best family in the world promises to always live what you taught us: there is nothing more important than family. We will carry on using the strength that you taught us but we know we can all be together again just by pouring a cup of coffee.
