Mary Grace Howrelook Obituary

Mary Grace (Haddad) Howrelook, 91, of New Kensington, went home to her Lord Thursday, Dec. 21, 2023. Mary was born Sunday, Jan. 10, 1932, in New Kensington, to the late Chahoud and Jamily Haddad. She worked as a business administrator for the New Kensington-Arnold School District, retiring after 25 years of service. Prior to working there, she was also employed at the WearEver division of ALCOA. Mary was a lifelong member of the United Presbyterian Church of New Kensington, where she was a deacon, helped with the newsletter, mercy meals and was part of the Care Group. She also was a member of the YMCA of New Kensington, the New Kensington Senior Citizens Center and the Show Me the Money Investment Club. Mary had three grandchildren who were the center of her love. She never missed a swim meet, play, piano recital, organ recital, concert, football game or any other activity that they were involved in. She loved family get-togethers with her daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren, as well as her siblings and their families. Memories were made around the Syrian picnics, Woodloch Pines in the Poconos and especially the yearly vacations to Ogunquit, Maine, with her sister, Sarah, daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren.
