Mary Fay, 95, was born February 7, 1915 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and died peacefully May 11, 2010 in Irvine. She lived in Washington, DC until she and her husband, Art, moved to Laguna Woods in 1991. Art predeceased her in 1997. In 2003 she moved to Villa Valencia in Laguna Hills and enjoyed many of the social activities while there. She is survived by her daughter, Mary Eileen ‘Muff’ Pete Tennyson and four grandchildren, Mark Rita, Rachel, Matthew, and Erica. She is at rest now after living a full and well traveled life.

Since Mary was a 23 year survivor of breast cancer, the family is asking donations be made to the Be Aware Foundation,, which provides education programs on early detection guidelines.

    Dear Muff,

    My heart goes out to you and your entire family for the loss of your Mom. She could not have had a more loving and attentive daughter. I know you will miss her dearly.

  2. Dear Muff and Pete,

    We do pray that your mom and the Lord are having a good laugh and truly grand time now that she’s done with this journey home. She will be keeping an eye on you and the whole fam from a perfect vantage. May you have a true peace and remember the best of times most vividly.

    Love to all – John and Lori
