Mary Audrey Cusic, 84, of Mechanicsville, MD earned her angel wings on December 29, 2013 at the Hospice House of St. Mary's in Callaway, Maryland, after a brave and hard-fought battle with cancer.

She lived her entire life in St. Mary's County, Maryland, raising a family with her late husband, John Philip Cusic, to whom she was marred on June 21, 1946 at St. Aloysius Catholic Church in Leonardtown, MD.

She was a past member of the DAV, where she once held position Office of Treasurer. Being of Catholic Faith, enjoyed attending Immaculate Conception Church in her younger years and St. Joseph Church in later years, when health allowed.

She is survived by her beloved children: Sandra (Bob) Neave of Waldorf, MD, Brenda Kuhlmann of Callaway, MD, and George (Dreama) Cusic of Mechanicsville, MD, her sisters, Dorothy Lampkins, and Betty Unkle, and her brother, Francis Higgs, 13 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, 2 great-great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, and her beloved poodle, Prince.

She was recently blessed to celebrate her 84th birthday party with her children and spouses, grand and great-grandchildren, and her siblings. She filled her life as a homemaker, a caretaker, a devoted wife, loving mother, grand and great-grandmother. She was a kind and wonderful spirit, full of grace and gratitude, with the faith of an angel and patience of a saint. She took joy in sharing with, caring for, and serving those around her. Those lucky to be in her presence were constantly reminded of her concern for their welfare and comfort, even in her last days. She made it no secret that her "loved Ones" were unconditionally loved.

She was known for her gardening, her pink and purple petunias and pansies, her love for her "poodle doodle" and kindness to animals. She also enjoyed yard sales and thrift shops, road trips with family, playing the organ, listening to Christian and county music and was also known for her one of a kind Southern Maryland stuffed ham, and her ability to fill a belly upon crossing the threshold to her home.
