Mary was a unique, caring and generous person. She was passionate about her cooking, traveling, art projects, photography, and volunteering. She loved the outdoor life with all her heart, but most of all she loved the Lord and her family.
Mary was born in Tucson, AZ on June 21, 1934 and passed away April 22, 2012 with her loving husband and daughters by her side. Mary is now in heaven painting, picking flowers, watching "The View", and singing with the angels. We will miss her dearly, her colorful personality and all.
