It is with a broken heart I announce the peaceful passing of my beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend MARY BRIDGET SALEMNO (LeGrow) of Philadelphia, PA on Thursday, December 30th, 2021 in her 91st year. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Dominic; her parents, Frederick and Florence (Voisey) LeGrow; brothers Walter, William and Ronald; sisters Joan Gallagher, Florence Whitten and infant sister, Shirley.
