Mary was a wonderful soul. When I would attend some of their family functions she always had a smile and truly enjoyed being around her children and grandkids. She will leave behind many great memories.

Mary was very nice and friendly. When ever you asked for her help she was always willing. She had a great sense of humor. I’ll miss visiting with her at the hospital volunteering and at Auxiliary/Partners events. My prayers are with Mary and her family.
