We were so sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. Got to know her through through occasional get togethers at a mutual friend Carmella. She was always so friendly, cheerful and kind, with a great sense of humor. I’m sure she will be greatly missed by those close to her, as all those who knew her. Our deepest sympthathy to all. We will keep her in our prayers and always remember her cheerfulness.

Mary was an awesome woman. Beautiful inside and out. So kind and caring and always had a smile. Mary was also a joker at times, very quick and witty. Mary will be greatly missed at our parties and mostly by our family, The Limbers. Love Chris and Heidi
