Mary was an inspiration to many staying active and independent late into her senior years. She drove herself to her hair appointments, shopping, walking at Sears, bingo and most incredibly to the job she had until 96 years of age. She was a hostess for over 20 years at the McDonald's in Allen Park at Goddard, and there wasn't a day that went by after she couldn't work anymore that she didn't miss being there and seeing all the friends she had made. Her granddaughter, Laura (Lori) would like to express thanks to the pharmacy staff at Rite Aid and CVS in Allen Park, Marge at Hair Palladium, Terry at Family First, The staff at Visiting Angels, Lisa, Sandy, Medilodge in Taylor, Henry Ford Hospice and especially Dr. Simms and his wonderful staff at Allen Park Family Physicians, for being the epitome of how a community works to take care of its members.
