Though I am sad to hear of Mary's passing, she really had an amazing life. Working alongside my Dad, Norman Giles, for most of her professional career, first at Emory, then Yale, then UGA, I always admired her intelligence and strong work ethic. Though a reserved and careful person, I felt as though she saw the world with clear and open eyes. She will be remembered as the role model and kind soul that she was.

Deeply saddened to hear about Dr. Mary Case. She was a faithful member of Church Women United- Greater Athens Unit. We will miss her sweet , sweet spirit and the love she poured into community projects each month. A life well lived as a true reflection of Christ. She loved Saint James United Methodist Church and kept them informed of all our efforts. May God comfort and strengthen her family.
