Larry, Jess, and family,

It is with a heavy heart that I offer my most heartfelt sympathy. Mary was always there to offer support, lend a hand, and answer any Avon questions I ever had. If either of us needed something for a customer, we reached out to each other and gladly helped if we could. She will be missed by all her customers, helpers, friends and fellow Avon Reps; as well as everyone who ever got to know her!

I will miss stopping by the house on my way home from work to chat about Avon and life in general. Please let me know if I can be of any help in any way at any time.

I miss my friend and share your grief and pain. May those special memories we shared with her, keep her with us and warm our hearts.

I will miss Mary and our chats at her store. We as Avon reps, had a lot to discuss. I have known Mary since she started with Avon. If I needed something she was my go to person. I bought cards which her mother made, to send to my Avon customers because they were hand made.
God bless her and her family.
She will be in our hearts forever.❤
