Tribute & Message From The Family


Mary McFarland (nee Wible) of Philadelphia, Pa., passed away suddenly on Wednesday, September 22, 2021( 65 years old). Born in Philadelphia, Pa., she was the daughter of William and Florence (nee Sadecki) Wible. Mary is survived by her loving husband Michael McFarland, her children Michael, Laura, and Jill, her sister Deborah Wible, many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.

Life of the party, visitor of 47 states, and self-described "funniest person in the family," Mary will be tremendously missed by anyone who has ever met her. She loved road trips, especially cross-country journeys to visit national parks and to see friends far and wide. The only thing Mary loved more was her family. If anyone locates the rest of her Bruce Springsteen polaroids from 1978, please forward them to the family. They're an essential part of the estate.

Relatives and friends are invited to Mary's Life Celebration Sunday, September 26, 2021 from 12:00pm until her Memorial Service at 4:00pm at the John F. Givnish Life Celebration Home, 10975 Academy Road, Philadelphia, PA 19154.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Children's Fund at CHOP (www.chop.edu/giving) in Mary's memory.
