Mary Mark, a longtime resident of Bolton Hill, died Oct. 30 at Meridian Nursing Home in Hamilton after a brief illness. She was 86.
Born on the Estonian island now known as Saaremaa, the former Marie Partel moved to the United States in the mid-1920s. She moved to Baltimore, where she worked in restaurants in the early 1940s.
Mrs. Mark is survived by a son, Yono Mork of Oakland, Calif., and a sister, believed to be living in New Jersey. A resident of Eutaw Place for nearly 30 years, she was close friends there with Ted and Albine Hart.
A private celebration of her life is planned in California, followed by the scattering of her ashes in the Pacific Ocean.
