Those of us who were lucky enough to know her, realize how fortunate we were to have Mary in our lives. Her love was unconditional. She was kind, elegant, beautiful and gracious, she was a true lady. |
Mary passed away June 3, 2012. She was born October 22, 1919, in Alabama.
Mary was married to Alex M. Chases for 20 years. When Alex passed away, she became Mrs. Norman Lewis for another 20 years.
Mary had two sons, Alex Jr. and Ronald; four grandchildren, Alex Butler, Brenen, Jason and Larkin; and four great-grandchildren, Stella, Olivia, Ava and Anabelle.
Mary was a co-founder and President of the La Jolla Debutante Ball Committee, President of La Jolla Women's Club and President of the Las Socias Nuevas charitable organization. She was honored by her peers and treated everyone with dignity and respect.
The goodness that was instinctive in her will last forever.
We love you Mary Nell, your laughter was like music.
