Wolleben, Mary

Mary Wolleben (nee Gailiunas), age 71, of Wilmington, DE, formerly of Plattsburgh NY, died on March 30, 2024 surrounded by family at the Hospice of Delaware.

Mary completed her Associate’s degree at Bucks County Community College and achieved AHIMA Certification as a Medical Record Technician. She held various part time positions in her field while raising her family.

She was preceded in death by her parents Dr. Peter & Katherine Gailiunas of Greenport, NY and her brother Dr. Peter Gailiunas II of Dallas, Texas. She is survived by her husband of 46 years Robert of Wilmington, DE, and children Robert Jr of Hainesport, NJ; Katherine of Menands, NY & Jonathan of Glenview, IL.

Mary lived a quiet but rich life enhanced by lifelong friendships she made in the many homes she kept. She cherished the many experiences she had raising her family throughout the Midwest and Upstate NY. She was particularly fond of the salt air and beaches of Long Island’s North Fork where she grew up and met her husband and the beauty of the Plattsburgh Champlain Valley region.

The true light of her life were her 3 grandchildren who she doted upon every chance she got. Her spirit lives on in them.

Visitation will take place Monday, April 8 from 10-11 am at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, 4701 Weldin Rd., Wilmington, DE 19803 with a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 am. Interment will take place privately.
