Obituary for Mary S. "Stevie" Hackett

Mary S. "Stevie" Hackett, 99, passed away Sunday, September 15, a week short of her 100th birthday in Arden Court of North Hills.

She was born September 22, 1919 in Pittsburgh, a daughter of the late George K. Stevenson, Jr. and Mary Anderson Stevenson.

Stevie was an avid golfer and rode horses working in clinics at the Frontier Nursing Service in Hyden, KY. She had been a member of the Fox Chapel Hunt, the Pittsburgh Hunt, and the Rolling Rock Hunt. She and her husband, Spencer, were founders of the St. Edmunds Academy in Pittsburgh and having a soft spot for the Phipp's Conservatory aided in its preservation. She was a member of St. Michael's of the Valley Church where she served for more than 20 years on the Altar Guild Society. She was a volunteer with the Chestnut Ridge Meals on Wheels for 28 years, delivering meals well after the age of 90.

In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Spencer R. Hackett in 1987, a son, Lt. David S. Hackett in 1967, and two brothers, James B. Stevenson and George K. Stevenson III.

She is survived by four children: Mary Ellen (Thomas) Williams of New Florence, James A. (Ann) Hackett of Cedar, MI, Thomas S. (Caroline) Hackett of Winston-Salem, NC, and Samuel E. (Michele) Hackett of Pittsburgh; nine grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, a sister, Ellen Cadman of Wolfeboro, NH, and two nieces and one nephew.

Friends will be received Wednesday from 2-4 and 6-8PM at the J. Paul McCracken Funeral Chapel, Inc., 144 East Main Street, Ligonier, PA. A service to celebrate Stevie's life will be held Thursday at 11:00AM at St. Michael's of the Valley Episcopal Church with her pastor, the Rev. Dr. James B. Simons officiating.

Interment will follow in the St. Michael's Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, it was Stevie's wish that memorials be made in her memory to St. Michael's Altar Guild, P.O. Box 336, Ligonier, PA 15658 or to the Children's Institute, Northumberland Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15217
