Mary was the daughter of the late Frank and Edna Siwek and a graduate of Saint Mary High School, Scranton, Pennsylvania. After spending her early years in Scranton, she married John Regan and they moved to Claymont, Delaware, where she has lived for the last 60 years.
Mary spent her career as a working mother raising two children. She worked part time at Pomeroys Department Store and eventually full time as an operator for Bell Atlantic/Verizon. She was also a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church for over 60 years.
