It was a very sad day when we received the message that Mary had passed. She and I worked together in the Engineering Dept in Frederick for many years. Mary was a fantastic Mother to Jeff and Tammy. She and Herb loved and enjoyed their children. Our family enjoyed knowing Mary and Herb and their family.
Rest in Peace, dear friend.
Much love,
Shirley, Ted, Shelley and Pam (Mundey) DePaolis

Mary and I were in the same classes and grades for our 12 years of school at Thurmont. We spent many hours at each other's house.
So sorry to hear of her passing. She was special. Was surprised to hear of her time at C&P as I also worked for C&P in Virginia and retired from Bell South in Florida. Much sympathy to her family and friends.
