Mack Jr. Sr. Mary Edward entered the Pallottine Missionary Sisters on February 3, 1956, in Huntington. She graduated from St. Mildred’s Academy (now St. Vincent Pallotti High School) in Laurel, Md. She made her first profession of vows in 1958 and her Final Vows in 1964. She spent most of her religious life in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston.

She remained in that position until her retirement in February 2009. After her retirement from the hospital she served as treasurer for St. Mary’s Convent. Sister Mary Edward lived many of the corporal works of mercy by feeding the poor, visiting the sick or lonely and consoling those who were mourning. She prayed much and had a special devotion to Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Her health declined more after 2013 and by March of 2017 she had to move permanently to the Sisters Infirmary, where she remained until her death.
