Mary E. Stark, 89, former Cabbage Hill resident and a lifelong resident of Lancaster County, entered into the Promised Land Dec. 19, 2014 at LutherCare, Lititz.

Mary was one of four daughters borne of the marriage of the late Robert Houston Adams and the late Evelyn Marrow Adams. She was predeceased by her first husband: John William Bloom; her second husband: Earl Leroy Stark; and sisters: Esther Eugenie Adams Wise and Evelyn Roberta Adams Pfautz.

In her younger days and even into her retirement years, Mary loved dancing to Big Bands and attended dances from Chester to York counties. She was employed for many years at the former Schick Electric and the former Armstrong Closure Plant. She was also active in the Sing-Out Lancaster organization in the 1960s. In later years, she enjoyed selling Avon Products to many of her English and Amish neighbors after moving to the Gordonville area in the mid-1970s.
