Mary Ferer Loftus
After a long battle with Alzheimer’s, Mary passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family at Potomac Green in Ashburn, VA on February 2, 2018. She was 81.
Mary was born in Swickley, PA in 1937 and raised in Meadville, PA. In 1959 she graduated with honors from the Francis Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. While there she met and married Martin Loftus, an Army Officer. They then began their 54 year journey, 23 years of which were to various Army posts across the United States and Europe.
In 2000 Mary retired after a more than 20 year nursing career with the INOVA Health Systems (Fairfax and Fair Oaks Hospitals). She was then able to enjoy her time summering at Rushford Lake, NY, joining her nurse friends in their book club and being with her family and watching her 9 grandchildren grow into adulthood.
Mary is predeceased by her parents, Dr. Walter and Margaret Ferer of Meadville, PA and her brother Walter “Tom” Ferer of NJ. She is survived by her loving husband Col. Martin R. Loftus, USA (Ret.) of Ashburn, VA; her four children, Kathleen Stapleton of Downingtown, PA, Bridget Holzwarth (Jake) of Exeter, RI, Mary Elizabeth Loftus of Centreville, VA and Kerry Diaz (Amador) of Centreville, VA and her 9 much loved grandchildren.
