ADD A MEMORY

Mary was a neighborhood mother to me. You see I was a local urchin who was good friends with Johnny. I was present in the home everyday in the summer and most days in winter. Mary was always kind and sweet to me. I also remember Jim's big warm laugh. I spent time at Rushford lake . Water skiing and fishing. I was always treated with love and respect. Knowing Johnny and I, we crossed some lines and yet I don't remember hearing Mary ever raise her voice to us. Marys' reunion with Johnny in Heaven is a wonderful thought. If Jim or one of the other family members would like to hear more I'd welcome their reply. Tiger the dog, who I still tell stories of his prowess with rabbits. The pool! Eugenes' pet Racoon. A backyard where you could play any sport...A childhood made wonderful in a large part, by Mary

Dear Family,
So blessed to have enjoyed moments with Mary, especially we will remember how she and her loving husband danced at our wedding as the couple with the most years of marriage. Our thoughts and prayers of sympathy are with all of you.

Dear Family,
Mary's energy to enjoy the company of others, her thoughtfulness in asking about others and her "superb smile" has been a blessing to behold. We treasure all the moments that we shared with her . May her faith-filled spirit continue to guide us all.
With our blessings now and always,
Renee and Fred Abbott

What a blessing Mary and Jim are to my family. I will never forget Mary’s constant smile and spunk. Oh, how she loved our seafood boil tradition for the last 10 years. So glad we got to share it again this year! She was her old plucky self that night, that is how I will forever remember Mary.
Love you Mary.
Regis and Jim
