Born Mary Alice George, on June 23, 1932, in Rochelle, Ill., she died peacefully on February 2, 2006, at St. Patrick's Residence in Naperville, after a long illness. She was raised in South Bend, Ind., where she graduated with honors from St. Mary's College. While working for IBM in Chicago, she met Dario Lencioni. They were married in 1956. After living in Evanston and Northbrook, the family moved to Wheaton. Mary devoted the following 15 years to their family and raising four children who fondly remember long walks in their neighborhood and frequent visits to the Wheaton Public Library. Mary was an active mother, a Cub Scout den mother, a Junior Great Books discussion leader and an outdoor education instructor at Edison Junior High School. One of Mary's passions was nature and she spent much of her time enjoying the outdoors, taking courses at the Morton Arboretum, bird watching or gardening. She was known for her long detailed bird lists on the annual DuPage County bird counts. In order to raise good canning tomatoes, she would not hesitate in filling family station with gallon water jugs to take to the family vegetable plot in Atten Park. In 1971, she won the Wheaton Mayor's beautification award for her leadership in landscaping "The Lane" along Merrill Drive after the 100-year-old Elm trees were removed.
