Obituary of Mary Jane Correia
Mary Jane Correia, 89, passed away on Feb. 22, 2021 in Weiser, ID. She was born on Feb. 9, 1932, in Santa Barbara, CA to Roy and Florence Shaw. Mary met her husband of 60 years, Arthur Anthony Correia, in 1950 and they married on April 1, 1951 in San Luis Obispo, CA. Together they raised three children: Michael, Diane and Darbie.
In October 1960, Mary and Art moved to Weiser, ID. After arriving in Idaho, Mary went to beauty school and worked as a hairdresser for over 40 years; owning the Magic Mirror in Weiser for many of those years. Mary was a member of the Ladies of the Elks and a faithful servant of the St. Agnes Catholic Church, singing in the choir for numerous years and serving the church community as a member of the local and Western Deanery chapter of the Catholic Women’s League. She loved doing things with her children and grandchildren, socializing, singing, dancing, traveling, gardening, and doing word search puzzles to keep her mind sharp.
Mary is survived by her son, Michael Correia (Jean); daughters, Diane Hill (Greg) and Darbie Correia-Dennison; three grandchildren, Anthony Correia (Amanda), Andrea Ramirez (Joey), and Wyatt Correia-Dennison; and two great grandsons, Lincoln and Crew Ramirez. Mary will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, and friend who always had a twinkle in her eye, playful spirit, beautiful singing voice, and ability to make new friends instantly.
