Mary Joan focused much of her life on raising her four children and working as Office Manager for the medical practice of Drs. Peter Schilder and Nicholas Capozzoli for nearly twenty years. She was a devout Catholic, and volunteered numerous hours over her lifetime, especially to St. Mary’s Parish, where she was a long-time member in the choir.
Mary Joan was a breast cancer survivor of more than 35 years and volunteered at the Breast Center of Anne Arundel Medical Center. She also enjoyed a second life during her 19-years wintering in Marathon, FL, where she was active in the local parish, garden clubs, and ladies clubs. She loved being at the beach, whether in Ocean City, MD or in Florida. Wherever she was in the world, she always had a sense of adventure and enjoyment of the people around her.
