DEDICATION & OPEN HOUSE
Rest In Peace, Mary Connor
On July 18, 2015, South Orange firefighters lowered the Village flags to half staff to honor the passing of Mary Connor, matriarch of the South Orange Rescue Squad. After joining the Rescue Squad in 1969 Mary dedicated more than 40 years of her life in service to the Rescue Squad and our community; many of those as President of the Squad.
In honor of her more than four decades of dedication and service to our community, The South Orange Rescue Squad will dedicate our new headquarters building in her memory.
Rest In Peace Mary. You are missed.
