Mary Sbano (Greco), age 98, a long-time resident of Wilmington passed away on April 23, 2020.

Mary was the beloved wife of the late Anthony P. Sbano, devoted mother of Vincent Sbano and his wife Sheila, Peter Sbano and his wife Cheryl and Maria Sbano.

Mary was born and raised in New York City where she met her husband Anthony; the love of her life. The couple moved to Wilmington, MA, in 1969, where she spent the rest of her life.

Mary worked as a seamstress during World War II; she sewed raincoats and would put a note or message in each raincoat pocket for the servicemen.

She was also a great storyteller, loved to play cards, loved to sing, and always had an answer for everything. Above all, her family was her life; they meant everything to her and she will be dearly missed.
