I loved growing up next door to Mary, she was a true delight! She watched out for us and made us laugh with her stories and more! My sympathy to Robbie, Julie and Dianne and your families. I know my Mom and Dad are welcoming her to heaven and catching up on her stories.

Mary, a loving wife and mother and a wonderful ,true friend .
Mary and I taught at St Rays and Mary brought such joy to the kids she taught and lots of laughs in the teachers room .

One of my fondest memories (and there are many )was the 1st grade Christmas pageant and this ,believe me was no ordinary pageant ,every kid had a part , Mary played the piano , did the songs , wrote the script ,and the best part were the costumes , Mary would go into the closet and take out an old curtain or tablecloth and that would be the wise men costumes , she was terrific and I will miss her .
My deepest sympathy to all who loved her.

Mary was a wonderful parishioner for whom I was privileged to be pastor at Corpus Christi. She was always active and helpful. She was also a great pilgrim on several of the pilgrimages on which we travelled. Sorry that I will not be able to be at the funeral, but I will celebrate a Mass for Mary as soon as I can. I will keep your family in my prayers as you deal with the grief of the loss of such an important part of your lives. May your togetherness support you and your faith console you.

Dianne, Nick and Nate, I am so sorry to hear about your mum's/grandmother's passing. With all her good deeds done for the Catholic Church, she is probably up in heaven looking down on all of you and having a great time with her husband and my parents. She was a lovely women. I will keep all of you in my prayers.
