My most sincere sympathy to the family of Mary. She was a gracious lady with a quick humor but also had the ability to be a great leader and no nonsense. GFWC Kentucky will miss her. Rest In Peace Mary.

I sat on many boards and committees over the years with Mary. Almost every positive project and improvement in SW Jefferson County has Mary's influence in it.

Michael, Jenny and families,
Please accept my condolences. Aunt Mary was a very special lady and she was loved by all of us. We used to look forward so much to her and Uncle Harold's visits to Roanoke. Mary has kept in touch with us through the years and we loved hearing from her and getting all the family news. She will be missed but we have good memories and will keep them in our hearts. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

i will be forever grateful for her assistance in my

When I became involved with KFWC (now GFWC Kentucky) and attended conventions, there was always this beautiful, no nonsense Southern lady at the head table serving as parliamentarian. Get her away from that table, though, and she could have you rolling on the floor with her wit. Mary will continue being an inspiration to me.

Please know that others will miss her too.
