Mrs. Hunsucker was described by her sons as a mother who wanted nothing but the best for her children and grandchildren. She was always an encourager, never ever critical and always had a great outlook on life. She always gave much more than she received, and that's the way she wanted it. Mary was a great artist and letter writer, and she always sent cards and loved to take care of those in need or who had fallen ill. She was a great contributor and supporter to The Salvation Army and Riley Hospital for Children. She was an avid pianist and played for Vallonia United Methodist Church for more than 30 years. She also frequently played the piano at Hoosier Christian Village in Brownstown and Heritage House nursing home in Seymour. She also painted in her spare time and was the shining example of faith, grace and humor to her family as well as those who called her their friend.
