She was born to Pauline and Mervin Umberger in Mount Holly, New Jersey on October 11, 1941, and raised in Moorestown, New Jersey. In 1960, she attended Glassboro State College where she met the love of her life, John Verderosa. They were married for 61 years and blessed with five children. For more than fifty years Mary had worked in the family amusement businesses on the Seaside Heights Boardwalk. She managed a variety of shops including a pizzeria and a Christmas store. She was known to many young people as "Mother Mary" for her concern for their well-being. She enjoyed traveling and had a love for animals. Everyone who knew her knew that her family was her pride and joy. She was a very supportive mother and could be seen at hundreds of her children's school and sporting activities over the years. She would relish the times they were all together. Her love and support will be deeply missed.
