Mary Margaret Parry was the fifth of six children to William and Mary Parry. The family moved to Rockland in 1966 and Nagle attended local schools through 10th grade, when she and her family moved to London. She graduated from Clarkstown North High School and the American Community School of London in 1981.

She graduated summa cum laude from Boston College in 1985 with a bachelor's in communications, with a concentration in marketing, and received her master's in finance and marketing from Columbia Business School in 1992. At Boston College, she was selected to the Order of the Cross and the Crown Honor Society; at Columbia, she was selected to the Hermes Honor Society.

She met her husband Daniel Nagle in 1990, and they were married at St. Augustine's Church in New City on May 15, 1993.

At the time of her death, Nagle was on a month's sabbatical from the leasing division of Volvo Car Finance North America in Rockleigh, N.J., where she was director of marketing, a job she had held since 1997. Before that, she worked for Katz Communications in New York City as marketing director from 1993 to 1997; for Western Union in Upper Saddle River, N.J.; and for John Blair Communications in New York City.

A strong sportswoman, the teenage Nagle had competed in swimming and tennis as a member of the Nyack Field Club and earned the club's Jewett Award for both sports. She was on the tennis and volleyball teams in high school. She remained a member of the Nyack Field Club after graduation and was a member of its Board of Trustees at the time of her death. She also was on the club's A team for paddle tennis.

She was a member of the New City Elementary School PTA and a communicant at St. Augustine's church. She was an unofficial tutor to numerous nieces and nephews, who would e-mail her their compositions for her editing, and would confide in her.

Daniel Nagle remembered her tremendous smile and warm brown eyes. Although their courtship lasted three years, the two knew almost as soon as they met that they had found their matches, he said. "When I met Mary, I knew she was the girl I had to marry from day one," he said. "It was fate."

Mary Nagle was described by her husband as independent and happy-go-lucky but focused and forward-thinking. She taught her husband how to play tennis, but didn't give him any breaks during matches. He said he never beat her at tennis.

She was devoted to her two children and proud of them, Daniel Nagle said. "Her life was her children. She loved to spend time with them. I knew her as a career woman, but she really was a mother — there was nothing more than that to her."

"She was a great person," Daniel Nagle said.

She is survived by her husband; a son, Christopher, and a daughter, Erin, all of New City; her parents, William and Mary Parry of South Yarmouth, Mass.; her brother and sister-in-law, William and Nancy Parry of Jacksonville, Fla.; her sisters and brothers-in-law Donna and Brian McGrath of Yarmouth Port, Mass., Ann and Frank Fallon of New City, Eileen and Richard Moson of Valley Cottage and Kathleen and John McGrath of Nanuet; her father-in-law, John Nagle, of Dumont, N.J.; brothers- and sisters-in-law John and Jamie Nagle of New City and Catherine and Patrick Doherty and Maryellen and James Heaney, all of Dumont, N.J.; 24 neices and nephews; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

The family is creating a scholarship fund in Mary Nagle's name.

Mary was murdered in her home by a contractor hired by the family. The individual was found guilty May 15, 2006 - what would have been Dan and Mary's 13th wedding anniversary.
