She was born at home in Bureau County, Illinois on July 23,1929. Mary is preceded in death by her loving husband of 52 years, Bill.

While I met Mary while teaching at Lowell Middle School, I got to really know and love her when we became neighbors on Birchwood Ct. Even after her stroke, Mary was always the sweetest and most positive person. I pray for her family, but know she is among the angels!
