Mary was born in Stoneham, Texas, on December 8, 1927, the daughter of Henry and Alice (Yorek) Wisnoski. She and her husband, John, owned and operated a motel. Mary was liked by everyone she knew. She did so much in many special ways; in loving words of comfort; in taking time to talk awhile; in sharing other people's joys; and in helping when she could. Her unique way of giving love in everything she did made her very special.
Mrs. Orlando was preceded in death by her parents; husband, John Orlando; brothers, Louis "Buddy" Wisnoski and John Wisnoski; and sisters, Theresa Wisnoski and Viola Kowis.
She is survived by her sister, Ann Wetuski of Houston; several nieces and nephews; and many friends, especially close friends, Max and Nancy Parast.
Serving as pallbearers are Roy Wisnoski, Robert Wisnoski, Johnny Wisnoski, Marvin Kowis, Tommy Orlando, and Max Parast. Honorary pallbearers are Josh Wisnoski and Danny Kowis.
