Mary Frances Bruski (58), passed away peacefully on June 3, 2019 following an extended hospital stay. She had been a resident of Mount View Assisted Living for the previous 10 months and a life-long resident of Niagara County. Born to Fred and Ann Bruski in Flint, Michigan on July 24, 1960 and living in Lockport, NY since the age of 8, Mary graduated Lockport Senior High in 1979. Talented in all things creative, Mary became a licensed cosmetologist and ran her own beauty shop from her home on Washington Street for 10 years. She went on to do office work for Harnden Trucking, AA Nodine Insurance, and taught at Marjon School of Beauty. Mary also sold jewelry and was a top sales board member for Lady Remington Jewelry Company, which allowed her to take cruises and travel. Mary was a faltering friend of Bill W. for many decades and had a charismatic personality that brought people joy.
