Mary Sill Obituary

Mary C. Sill of Wilmington, Delaware passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, December 3, 2023, one day shy of her 85th birthday.  Born in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania on December 4, 1938, she was the daughter of the late Charles J., Sr. and Mary C. (Rigler) Sill.

“Toots”” as she was affectionately called, was a graduate of Conrad High School and was employed as an administrative assistant with Equitable Insurance Company for more than 45 years, having retired in 2003.  She was a member of St. Elizabeth Parish and lovingly cared for her mother for several years until her passing in 2005.  Toots enjoyed day trips to Lancaster and summer vacations in Wildwood.  On occasion, she also enjoyed playing the slot machines at Delaware Park.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brothers, Ronald F. Sill, Sr. and Charles J. Sill, Jr.

Toots will be dearly missed by her niece, Lisa M. Sieg and husband, Scott; her nephew, Ronald F. Sill, Jr. and wife, Victoria; her great niece, Grace Sill; her sister-in-law, Mary H. Sill
