Mary was a good friend to this Yankee from Syracuse, New York. We were close personal and professional friends in the facility management industry for many years. Mary was gracious, stylish, generous, smart, savvy, classy and a very lucky gambler...as I recall our attendance at conferences in Las Vegas where she kept winning jackpots on the slot machines. Good bridge player as well. Mary was a grand slam lady.
I know she loved her girls very much and that she will be greatly missed. How lucky those girls and grand children were to have had the opportunity to have a woman of Mary's character as their mentor and mom and grandmom. My best to the family and all of her friends. She lives in my heart.
