Mary Jane Nigro, 87, of San Diego died from melanoma on June 12th, 2019. She was born on July 12, 1931 in Toledo, Ohio, the daughter of Karl & Ursula (McTigue) Delaney. She attended Notre Dame Academy high school and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from The University of Toledo in 1953.
In 1955 Mary Jane moved from Toledo to San Diego and began her teaching career as an elementary school teacher. Her independent spirit, friends and availability of jobs led Mary Jane to San Diego. In 1957 she was married to Louis Victor Nigro at Blessed Sacrament Church in Toledo.
Mary Jane was a member of St. Therese Catholic Church where she served as a Eucharistic Minister and Mother’s Guild member for many years. She was an active volunteer at St. Vincent De Paul where she mentored children with their school work and reading. She was also a board member of the Del Cerro Park for several years and one of its founding members.
Mary Jane loved to spend time with her family and also loved playing bridge with friends and spending time at the beach. She continued to ride the waves on her boogie board well into her 80’s. She had a wonderful smile that would light up a room and spent many Fall Saturday’s cheering on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on the gridiron.
Mary Jane is survived by her son Larry and his wife Molly; son Stephen and his wife Carolyn, son Jim and his wife Lisa and daughter Virginia and her husband Matt; seven grandchildren (Jeffrey, Sarah, Melissa, David, Katie, Anna & Elena); sister Patricia Docis; five nephews and three nieces. In addition to her parents, her husband, Louis Nigro preceded her in death.
A rosary will be held at 10:30am followed by a Funeral Mass at 11am on June 21, 2019 at St. Therese Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Vincent de Paul, San Diego, St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center, Right to Life, San Diego or Whispering Winds.

Mary Jane was one of our most fond reasons for attending Bible Study on Thursday nights, she kept our group organized and on task. We will sorely miss her.
Our ongoing prayers and love to the family.
Warm regards,
Phil and Beverly Mascari

Aunt Mary Jane was an inspiration to me. She was modern woman who ventured out from home in OH, had a wonderful career, met the love of her life in Uncle Louie and then had the joy of being a homemaker and stay at home Mom. She did it all! I am so glad she continued to pursue her passion and love of the beach!
She touched so many lives; all of whom will miss her.
Our prayers wish her a speedy reunion in heaven with Uncle Louie!
