ADLESIC
MARY L.
Mary L. Beaver, born November 11, 1923, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Inez Callahan and Richard Beaver, known to her children (especially during her last years as she battled dementia) as "Our Little Peanut", "Beaver", "The Beave", "Mum", and "Grandma". Mary graduated from Carrick High School and Saint Joseph School of Nursing where she received the degree of Registered Nurse. In 1956, Mum married her sweetheart, Joseph James Adlesic. She served our great nation as an R.N. for the Veterans Administration for close to 50 years while simultaneously raising her six children, who survive her, Mary Jo, Joseph Richard, John Francis, Catherine Inez, James Timothy, and Patricia Ann. After retiring from nursing, God sent Mary the beatific gift of four precious grandchildren from her beloved daughters, Mary Jo and Cathy. "Grandma", in the sheer bliss of "grandma-hood", loved those four as her own. They are Caroline Keane, Christopher Caterino, Deirdre Keane, and Conor Caterino. Always, when asked of her thoughts, "Mum" would reply, "my children, may they always be loved and blessed by God with peace, comfort, happiness." "Beaver's" mercy seemed to rain straight from the heavens. No matter how dire the circumstance, she was always quick to a pure and hearty laugh to lighten the room. "Our Little Peanut" possessed a kind of unworldly emotional and physical strength. Indeed, during her long career with the Veteran's Administration, she worked primarily with the most traumatized of our nation's defenders, the quadriplegic. A defining event in Mary's life perhaps exemplifies her gifts of physical resolve and loving compassion. One particularly hot and humid day, her sons, Joseph and John, having stepped off the school bus, discovered their little brother, James Timothy, laying near dead in the middle of the road. He had just been struck by a drunk driver two hundred feet from the front porch of the house. Suddenly, alerted by daughter Trish that James had been hit by the car, Mary raced barefoot down the street onto the blistering pavement to embrace and rescue him. She stood only 4'10" tall and 105 pounds yet, with Herculean strength, lifted her six-year old baby boy up to her chest and ran back up the hill, cradling him to safety. And so, as our dear "Little Peanut" did for brother, "Jimmy Timmy", may the Lord now reach down and covet "Mum" with his omniscient power and grace and place her divinely at her special seat in heaven. May angels' whispers let her know she is Home, with Jesus, and with her mother, Inez, and father, Richard, her sister, Margaret, and brothers, Billy and Richard. God Bless our "Mum", "Little Peanut", "Beaver", "The Beave" and may she rest in peace. We love you "Mum" with all our might and will think of you every day. We will miss you dearly. Your loving husband, children, grandchildren, friends and family. Friends will be received on Sunday from 4 to 8 p.m. and Monday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the BOCK FUNERAL HOME, LTD., 1500 Mt. Royal Blvd., Glenshaw. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated in St. Joseph Church, O'Hara Twp., on Monday at 12 noon.
