HUBBARD — Mary Patricia McClure Salata, 82, passed away early Saturday morning, Feb. 20, 2021, peacefully in her home surrounded by family.

She was born July 23, 1938, in Youngstown to Mary Tomaino and James McClure.

She loved her family very much, and they all held a special place in her heart, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Mary’s name to All Caring Hospice, 6715 Tippecanoe Road, Canfield, OH 44406.
