Mary Hybarger

Post Independent
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Mary was born in Grand Junction. She started her education in Rifle, and was one of the 11 seniors that started school together in the first grade, out of 38 seniors. Many of the students had already left to go into the service of our country.

She worked for the US Bureau of Mines (oil shale). She married Wilfred “Hoot” Hybarger and later moved to Tucson. She retired as Buyer from Learjet/Bombardier with 26 years of service.

This photo was taken in 1991 when she received Employee of the Year, for her company.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Louie and Carolina Bonacci Scalzo; sister, Filomae Zarlingo.

She leaves behind an adoring family of four children, sons, Ron and Tom; two daughters, Carol and Ivy; five grandchildren; six great grandchildren, all of Tucson; brothers, John Scalzo, Bert Griefenberg; sister, Irene Wigington; two nephews, Robert and Larry Zarlingo; niece Linda Kramer of Grand Junction.

She dedicated her entire life to her children. Mary’s plan was to volunteer in taking care of small children when she retired at 76 years of age.

The day after her retirement she started a long life of medical problems. Please do not let that happen to you.

Funeral service and burial have already taken place in Tucson, Ariz.
