She attended St. Paul’s Catholic Church where she was an ardent supporter of the folk group. Upon retiring to Dunnellon in 1986, she enjoyed gardening, birdwatching, and crafts and attended St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Citrus Springs. In 2008, she moved to John Knox Village in Tampa where she and her dog, Jessi, were community favorites.
Mary had two sons: Carmen L. Iacino II of New Castle, CO and Richard A. Iacino (deceased); three daughters, Dolores Iacino of St. Petersburg, Rita Jane Iacino of Tampa, and Jean M. Iacino of Sacramento, CA; and one grandson, Christopher W. Bruce of Clermont.
