Mary Catherine Maurer Hobin, 91, joined her beloved husband, William Frank Hobin Sr., in heaven Oct. 4, 2020. Interment was in Calvary Hill Cemetery in Dallas. She was born in Greensboro, N.C. on Aug. 10, 1929, to Arthur and Esther Maurer. As a graduate of St. Joseph Academy, Mary was a professional in the women’s workforce at various businesses in downtown Dallas. Mary met her best friend, Bill, at a Catholic Singles Dance in Pleasant Grove. They were married at St. Joseph’s Church in 1950 and moved to Dallas. She was a longtime fixture of the Dallas Catholic School systems, including food service manager of Bishop Lynch and St. Pius X, as well as a member of St. Pius X Rosary Makers guild, and den mother to her children’s classrooms. Nearing her 50th birthday, Mary Catherine heard the medical calling and became a nurse after graduating from the LVN Program at El Centro, downtown Dallas. Following her pinning, she worked for many years at Dr’s Hospital (now City Hospital), at White Rock. Her courage has inspired many family members to follow in her medical footsteps. As a busy mother of six, Mary enjoyed fulfilling careers, hobbies, as well as a second residence in Wills Point in Willow Lake Estate.
