Mary Hope Huber

July 12, 1924 - February 9, 2021 Kennett Square, PA | Age 96

Mrs. Mary “Hope” Ferguson Huber, age 96 passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 9, 2021 following an illness. Born in Wayne, PA on July 12, 1924 she was the daughter of the late Thomas G. and Mary G. (Doyle) Ferguson.

Mrs. Huber attended St. Katharine of Siena School, graduating in the class of 1942. She worked at Bell Telephone and Philadelphia Water Company and she would share many stories about her train rides into Philadelphia. In the late 1950’s Hope was on a path to become a nun… that is until she met the love of her life, Edward Huber, a handsome man in the Army (she loved a man in uniform). They would enjoy a lovely marriage of over 60 years living in Aston, PA where she and her husband raised their family. Hope and her husband retired and moved to Kennett Square to be close to their children and grandchildren. During their time in Kennett Square, they also met many dear friends.

Hope was a woman of incredible Catholic faith, a faith that she lived every day. She leaves behind this wonderful gift of faith to her family.

In her free time, Hope loved hunting for a bargain and was the Queen of knick knacks. She loved chocolate and anything sweet and her presence was felt where ever she was and her sassy personality always made you smile, even in her final days. She had a wonderful love for animals and rescued 3 cats, Snowball, Tigger, and Holly. Her favorite place was Cape May, NJ with her beloved husband “Eddie”. Most of all, Hope dedicated much of her life unselfishly to her family whom she loved so much.

Mrs. Huber is survived by her children, Mark (Linda), Marie (Tom), and Anne (Harry), and she was an amazing grandmother to 4 grandchildren, Justin, Kristen, Kimberly, and John.
