Our sympathy to you on the loss of Mary Jane. From Princeton-Illinois Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Stephanie and John please accept my condolences! I was sorry to read about your Mom passing away! My thoughts and prayers are with you both!

Dear Steph & John,
I'm so sorry, I just heard about your mom. She was one of my favorite people in the world and the first Martha Stewart. Whether it was the popcorn balls at Halloween, the painted santa cookies, or the beautifully decorated house, or medical advise when a doctor couldn't be reached. We'll keep all of you in our thoughts & prayers - from all the Cecil girls & Wally.

Dear Stephanie and John ... Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this most difficult time. I can still see your Mom and Dad across the street from us in Aetna. Your Mom gave out the best Halloween treats. That was the only time of the year I would get to eat a popcorn ball and boy did I look forward to it.. She was was a wonderful, thoughtful lady and I know she will be missed.

Stephanie and John: So sorry to hear about your Mom. She was such a wonderful woman--so loving and caring and fun! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Stephanie--so sorry to hear about your mom--I knew it was getting close to her leaving this life and start enjoying her eternal life. She is in a much better place--thinking of you during this difficult time---Love, Coco

Valerie & John I am sorry for your loss may Mary's memory be eternal.

To the Family of "NURSE TANKE":
She was a wonderful person to work with and a great nurse. She will be sadly missed. My prayers are with you.

I worked with Mary Jane in Gary. I remember her positive attitude with both children and adults. She will be missed.
