Mary Engel Obituary

Mary Elizabeth (Bauer) Engel, age 77, of New Smyrna Beach. died peacefully at home on February 27, 2024.

Mary was born in Jamestown, NY to John and Helen (Reardon) Bauer. She grew up in Erie, PA where she met her future husband Dave at a dance, and after a whirlwind romance, they were married for 52 years until his passing in 2019.

Mary spent her life taking care of her family. She was the boss of the home, where she kept everything running smoothly for a busy family of six. Mary loved to travel on road trips. When her children were young, they’d all pile into the car nearly every weekend to visit places like Washington DC or New York or Niagara Falls. Later, she thought nothing of driving hundreds of miles to see the people and places she loved. After moving many times for Dave’s career, they raised their kids in the Philadelphia area, and eventually retired in Florida.  

Mary is predeceased by her husband Dave, her brother John and sister in law Shirley, her brother in law Gene, and her niece Diane Rougeux Krysiak. She will be dearly missed by her children; David John (Jill) Engel of Lititz, PA; Christine (Bob) Russo of Haddonfield, NJ, Jeff (Janice) Engel of New Smyrna Beach; and Erica Engel of Hilliard, FL along with 8 grandchildren; in addition to she leaves behind her dear sister Marcia Rougeux of Erie, PA. along with many nieces and nephews.

A Christian Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, March 8th at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. 998 Father Donlon Dr, New Smyrna Beach.

A burial will take place later in 2024 in Erie, PA.
