DAYTON – We mourn the passing and celebrate the life of Mary L. Aubel.
Mary Bane was born and raised in Niagara Falls, N.Y., one of eight children of Harriet and Joseph Bane.
She married Carl L. Aubel, the love of her life on June 23, 1945. After completing his service in the U.S. Army, the couple moved to Niles, where Carl became a truck driver.
Mary and Carl had two children of their own and then opened their hearts and family by helping raise two sets of nieces and nephews for a decade. Her "can do" attitude overcame any and all obstacles she encountered. Her ability to nurture while providing structure to her expanded family energized and encouraged all those around her.
In the late 60s, Carl and Mary moved to Canfield, which was the site of many family gatherings, engineered by Mary. After Carl died, Mary moved to Dayton, to live with her son, David, and his family.
Mary's primary occupation was that of homemaker extraordinaire, but she also found time to be a daycare provider for several children to whom she was not related. Additionally, she worked in a local nursery, was a clerk in Strouss' Department store, and was a cleaner at Wedgewood Apartments in Austintown.
She was a long-time member of the First Presbyterian Church of Niles and then later a member of The Presbyterian Church in Canfield. Her steadfast belief in God was deeply entwined with her love of nature. She incorporated the joy that gave her into the yard at her house.
Mary was a voracious reader. She also loved to play cards and word games, always to win. She was forever ready to have fun with friends and family and was rather inventive in some of the jokes and projects she would instigate. She was an excellent baker and was locally known for her doughnut sales to help raise money for church or scouts. She decorated cakes and made a wide variety of cookies to help family and friends with weddings, Christmas celebrations and graduations. When the children were young, she sewed clothes for them and then later in life took up counted cross stitch. Those projects are now a legacy for her family.
She is survived by one sister, Kathryn Newton of Chester, N.J.; three brothers, Joseph Bane of Lewes, Del., Paul Bane of Niagara Falls, N.Y., and Raymond Bane of Shreveport, La. She is survived by her two children, David Aubel of Centerville and Jo Anne Bond of Colorado Springs, CO; and the four other children she helped raise, Susan Bane-Trued of Absecon, N.J., Jimmy Barr of Niles, Janet Pumphrey of Austintown, and Tim Bane of Media, Pa. She is also survived by seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
May memories of her live on in your heart.
