Please share a memory of Mary-Alice to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Mary Hally Shortall, 55, of Boonton, NJ passed away peacefully on August 23, 2020.

Born and raised in South Huntington, NY and Basking Ridge, NJ to her loving

parents, Luke J. Hally, Jr. and Maureen Hally, she settled in Boonton with her

husband Brian Shortall 26 years ago.

Mary was a kind, gentle, loving person who was beloved to all who knew her. She

was defined by her abiding faith, devotion to family, and a great generosity of spirit.

Mary graduated from Seton Hall University with a BSN and was employed as a Legal

Nurse Investigator at Porzio, Bromberg, & Newman law firm in Morristown.

She was past President of the NJ Association of Legal Nurse Consultants. A dedicated

volunteer at Several Source Shelter and the Market Street Mission, Mary was active

in her community and devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary and her church. She was

actively engaged in fund-raising for Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School, where her

children were educated in their younger years. Her love of God and commitment to

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, where she served as a Eucharistic Minister, brought

her great joy. An avid outdoor enthusiast, Mary enjoyed gardening, yoga,

entertaining, and Cape May. She was blessed with many wonderful friends.

Mary is survived by her beloved husband of 26 years, Brian Shortall, and cherished

children Erin Shortall and Connor Shortall, as well as her adoring parents, Luke and

Maureen Hally, and her loving sisters, Deirdre Hally Shaffer of Doylestown, PA and

Tara (Tim) Smith of Succasunna, NJ and was preceded in death by her brother, Luke

J. Hally III. She was dedicated to her many nieces and nephews. Her warmth,

guidance, and laughter will be carried in their hearts forever.
