Mary Jane Horty Lyons ’52

The Ursuline community is proud to recognize one of its own, Mary Jane Horty Lyons ’52 who has been instrumental in raising funds for the Garrett B. Lyons Pediatric Dental Clinic at A.I Dupont Children’s Hospital in Wilmington, Del.

Mary Jane is close to meeting the one million dollar goal for the new clinic and has served as a volunteer with the Hospital throughout the years. The clinic will focus on underserved children and their dental needs, with resident internships available. These internships will provide opportunities to learn techniques of dental care unique to the myriad of medical situations ranging from autism to the severely handicapped. Following the completion of their residency, the interns will take the skills learned to areas around the country and world.

Mary Jane and her family, long involved with the Ursuline community, have roots going back to the early 1900’s. Truly, Mary Jane and her family have taken Ursuline’s guiding principal of Serviam, I will serve, to an exciting level for the Hospital and our local community.
