My thoughts & prayers are with you at this sad time,so sorry I could not be there.
I can still see Aunt Mary surrounded by smiling,laughing children while she gently washed their hands in preparation for lunch. What a worker bee & pioneer she was- kind of like the Diamond Lil of childcare!
RIP Aunt Mary, you were a treasure and a pleasure.
“Pat: Mary and I were very sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. In reading her obituary, she brought a lot of joy to many people. I have vivid memories of she and your dad coming into the Bloomington store....I think we all stood a little taller and smiled a little more when she was there.
“My Deepest Condolences to the Sorensen Families, I too have good memories of Mary. She was such a delight to visit with when I stopped over before, during or after my work shift at Penn Cycle. Always, always had an open and loving heart.
“I've known Mrs. Sorensen since I was 9 years old. She was one of my mom's best friends and a wonderful woman. She will be dearly missed.
“Pat, we feel so sorry for you and your siblings for the loss of your Mother. She must have been a very special lady.
