Mary M. (Peg) Sever, 75, of Vestal died peacefully at Our Lady of Lourdes Memorial Hospital on January 20, 2019 after a brief but sudden illness. She was born at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Carbondale, PA to Joseph and Nancy (Jennings) Wilson. She graduated from St. Rose High School in Carbondale, and earned her BA from Marywood College. She was proud that her liberal arts education prepared her for many different roles over the course of her career: French teacher; purchasing agent; salesperson; and finally with the Broome County Chamber of Commerce where she directed the Broome Leadership Institute of which she was particularly fond and through which she made many lasting connections across the county. Peg was very active in the Our Lady of Sorrows parish as a member of the parish council, Eucharistic minister, lector and singer in the choir. She loved to travel, having made several trips to Europe, the Caribbean, and to Russia through the exchange program with Binghamton’s sister city Borovichi, Novgorod Oblast. She is remembered by her son Joseph and his wife Magdelynn of Ithaca; her son Matthew of Clifton Park; and her daughter Brenda and her husband Kendall Putnam of Union, KY. She also leaves behind six grandchildren, one great granddaughter, one niece and one nephew, and several cousins. She was predeceased by her sister Nancilu Verrastro.
The family will receive visitors from 4 to 7 pm on January 24, 2019 at Allen Memorial Home in Endicott. A funeral mass will be held at 10 am on January 25, 2019 at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Vestal. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider donations to Mary’s Meals USA, 75 Orchard Street, Bloomfield, NJ 0700

Peg was such a vibrant addition to the University Singles group. She hosted the best parties....not the least of which was the Tee Shirt party. People hunted all year to come up with the most outrageous tees. Peg was a warm, welcoming woman. We so enjoyed her friendship....condolences to her family.

I will miss Peg at our Tuesday morning Mah Jongg games at the senior center. She was fun. So sorry!

I knew Peg through the Newcomers and Neighbor's Club. We played Canasta and MahJong at her residence game room. She was also one of the usual foursome playing MahJong at the Broome Senior Center-West. I think of her often, even though I have moved to WA and will miss her, but still have fond memories.
