Mary A. Wallman
ROCHESTER/PITTSFORD
Passed away on March 30, 2024 at the age of 87. She was predeceased by her parents, John and Mary Wallman, her brothers Raymond and John Wallman and brother-in-law Douglas Wittman.
As the oldest of six siblings Mary was known to many as “Hidder”a nickname awarded to her by her first sibling Jake, who as a toddler had trouble pronouncing “sister.” So Hidder she was for 80+ years!
She is survived by a large adoring crowd.
Her siblings: Fred (Elaine) Wallman, Richard (Judy) Wallman, and Barbara Wittman; her cousins: Dan McWilliams, Betty (Gary) Lewis and Dennis (Chris) Hogan.
Certainly, if you chatted with Mary you heard much about her beloved nieces & nephews, “The Back 9 Gang”: Rick (Wendy) Wallman, Steve (Laura) Wallman, Scott (Wende) Wallman, Jeff (Dot) Wittman, Julie (Fritz) Cryser, Amy (Juan) Wallman, Jimmy Wallman, Keith (Sarah) Wallman, Diane (Brad Wazaney) Wallman.
No group could bring her more smiles, laughs and gasps then her adored great-nieces & nephews: Jack (fiance Natalie), Cole & Trey Wallman, Hayes (fiance Victoria) & Bryce Wallman, Koby & Kyle Wallman, Tyler & Jessica Wittman,  Andrew Wallman, Charleen & Ian Cryser and Ray & Harris Wallman.
Recently she was able to meet the next generation, her great-great-nephew, Knox Wallman.
It is impossible to remember Mary without mentioning golf!  Always active (skiing, walking, etc.) she simply loved the game of golf and was  a long-time member of Mendon Golf Club. She had many tournament wins & multiple hole-in-one shots to her credit!
Mary’s discipline and work ethic were what you would expect growing up on a farm with a school teacher Mother. She graduated from Pittsford Central Schools (Class of 1953), then Rochester Institute of Technology. After college, she immediately started working at the University of Rochester, where she would stay for 40 years.
Faith and her religion were core to Mary’s life, she was very devout and attended church regularly. Mary had a special soft spot for dogs, any dogs, but especially her beloved beagles. She covered countless miles on her parents’ farm with Ziggy, Patches and Berry.
Family and friends are invited to a Memorial Mass at 10:00 AM on MAY 11, 2024 at St. John of Rochester in Fairport. Interment at White Haven Memorial Park to follow. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to WXXI or the Carmelite Monastery.
