Mary Scully

June 16, 2017


Mary Louise Scully, 88, Fargo, ND formerly of Edina and Bloomington, MN passed away on June 16, 2017 at Rosewood on Broadway in Fargo. Mary was born December 18, 1928 in Grand Forks, ND, the daughter of Clarence “Tanny” and Pearl Gies. She graduated from Sacred Heart Academy in Fargo, and went on to study Journalism at the University of North Dakota where she became a member of the Alpha Phi Sorority. It was at UND where Mary met her red-headed Sigma Chi, Tom Scully. They married in 1949 and had four daughters.

Mary loved to entertain, whether it was singing with LeagueAires, joining family and friends around the piano, or writing and performing in Radio Days at Friendship Village. She dabbled in painting and poetry and was a lover of animals, flowers and jazz music. Mary was known for her spunk and dry, witty sense of humor. She will be greatly missed.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Thomas R. Scully; daughter, Sheila Scully; and grandson, Tommy Deutsch.

She is survived by her daughters, Maggie (Mike) Deutsch; Nan (Lynn) Scully-Collins; and Liz (Eddie) Scully; 8 grandchildren; and 7 great-grandchildren.

The family will hold a service in Grand Forks at a later date.

    Dear Mary — what fun we had together way back when we were young and never thought we’d grow old! You were always such a joy to be with. Ah, the olden, golden days! You are missed by all who knew you.

    So sorry to hear about Mary. I haven’t seen Mary for years, but enjoyed singing in LeagueAires with her for several years. She was a very caring and precious lady!

    Maggie, Nan, & Liz, we were so saddened to hear the news of your tremendous losses of BOTH of your beautiful, FUN, & witty parents. I cannot begin to tell you the joy that they brought into those special times that we spent together w/them–lots of jokes, laughter, & sharing good family memories w/each of them. As the old saying goes “God gave us memories so that we’d have roses in winter.” I know that the warm & precious memories that you have of them will help fill the void that you 3 inevitably feel & will help warm your hearts in the years ahead. Mary & Tom were very special people in our lives. We will miss their “presence,” but we will carry the fun “Scully” memories in our hearts & minds for the rest of our lives. God bless you & your families always, but especially during this very trying time. Love to all, Kent & Marcia Rindy.

    Mary, darling girl,
    I’m remembering all our harmonizing on Annie Laurie around the piano on Fremont,
    and arguing about what happened at Carleton this time!
    Memories will keep us warm for awhile…maybe always. God bless you and Tom, and
    your wonderful daughters along with the whole family. Be seeing you,

    Hello Scullys: I just learned of your parents’ “passing” (I don’t like that terminology!). I took a walk up to the cemetery to commiserate with Aunt Kathleen, and told her how I hoped she had the welcome mat out, the glasses clinking, and the piano tuned. What a gracious and generous world she shared with your family. I can never remember a time I did not hear about the Scullys – as a kid I may have been jealous. What joy and family you gave to her, when her own were so far away. I remember how devoted your mom was – coming to visit Aunt Kathleen, almost daily, in her last weeks. What friends they were. May we all be so lucky to have such good friends and wonderful memories. Warm regards and sincere commiseration.

    Mary & Tom were well-known at Friendship Village in Bloomington, Minnesota. We loved them both. It was so sweet seeing Tom doting over Mary. I gave them rides to appointments and enjoyed visiting with them and getting to know some of their memories. They are greatly missed. Peace to their family at this time of mourning. Tom and Mary were wonderful people.
