Mary Cleary, the wife of former Cal State Northridge President James Cleary, passed away Wednesday, April 24, in Boise, Idaho. Mrs. Cleary will be cremated and a funeral mass will be held on Wed., May 22, in Boise, followed by a memorial service.

During James Cleary's 23-year tenure as university president, Mary Cleary was a vibrant presence on the campus, contributing much to the university and the presidency. She was an avid bridge player, a gracious host, a good friend to faculty, students, staff, administrators and alumni, and an enthusiastic and committed member of the University Women's Club. She also was a woman of enormous faith who attended Mass every Sunday.

After President Cleary's retirement, the couple moved to Boise to be close to their grandchildren. Mrs. Cleary had been struggling with cancer for many years and, during periods of remission, she was able to travel with Dr. Cleary, visiting friends in countries all around the world.

Mrs. Cleary is survived by her husband and two daughters, Colleen and Janet, and two granddaughters by Janet, Megan and Anna. A third daughter, Patricia, passed away in 2000, also of cancer.

Dr. Cleary served as the university's president from 1969 through 1992. The university community owes a great debt to James and Mary Cleary for their work in guiding and building the campus during a period of tremendous growth and change.
