Obituary

Mary C. Rios-Rutherford, 69, a longtime resident of the West Side of Chicago-Pilsen and Little Village neighborhoods, passed away on October 26, 2020 with family at her side. She was born to the late Jose and Nolberta Rios on December 4, 1950 in the Great State of Texas. Mary was the dearly beloved wife of the late Paul W. Rutherford and devoted mother to the late Joshua W. Rutherford, Nancy (Frank) Salinas, Cecilia (Joseph) Mannion and Paul J. (Cristina) Rutherford. Loving Grandmother to Joshua and Gianna Rutherford; Jacob, Victor, and Frankie Salinas; Amanda, Jessica, John, Michelle, Michael, Joseph, Mariah, Ezio, and Angelo Mannion; Maria, Mia and Vanessa Rutherford. Great Grandmother to many children. Beloved sister to the late Joseph (late Carole) Rios, Phil (Veronica) Rios, the late Olivia (Frank) Acevedo. Dear Daughter-in-law to the late Paul W. and Jessie Rutherford. Dear Sister-in-Law to Gerry (late Julio) Aguliar, the late Julia (late Erine) Pridemore, the late Lena (Kurt) Kotlik, and the late Paula (Fred) Teer. Mary was the aunt to many nephews and nieces and aunt/Godmother to Francine (Byron) Garcia.

Mary was active in volunteering in the community as a baseball mom, was part of the PTA at Cokerky Elementary, and was very active with her husband in assisting many local politicians to become elected in Chicago. Mary was also a business owner where she owned and operated her own restaurant and fed the less fortunate. Mary was the glue that kept her entire family together.

One of my fondest memories was when I was around 3 years old, Mary use to baby sit me and I remember a lot of fun at Harrison park and trips to the corner store for candy. I now keep those memories alive as I build my family tree on Ancestry. My condolences to the Rutherford family. "Joey"
