Mary Sweeney Corrigan, 90, of Olyphant, died Monday May 4, 2015 at VNA Hospice at Geisinger Community Medical Center, Scranton. She was married at the age of 20 to the late James Corrigan.

Born in Olyphant, she was the daughter of the late Anthony and Mary Scanlon Sweeney and she was a 1943 graduate of Olyphant High School. She resided in Carbondale for 60 years and raised two loving children, Maureen Crea and the late Jay Corrigan. Later she lived in Dickson City to be near her son.

She worked in the garment industry and in the 70’s at Fashion Bug. She was an avid doll collector and donated many to charity. Her greatest joy was taking care of her son Jay. Even when he didn’t want her to.
