Mary, my sweet friend our Champion unit has lost a loving link. You will be dearly missed by all of us. 27 years – you build a business and took care of your customers with golden rule service and carried on Mary Kay’s legacy of changing women’s lives. We thank Ray and your friend Barbara for getting you to meetings when you couldn’t drive.
My heart aches to know I won’t see you here. I am comforted to know you are with God, your friend, you spoke with daily.
Condolences & prayers to family & friends.
You are loved, Breda, Jay & the Teal Family

Mary - you will be missed on Sunday mornings at Epiphany. We admired your strength and courage these last months. You had a very important mission for years - that is to keep the list of volunteers for bringing the after Mass goodies.

Thank you for being such a faithful member of our community. Enjoy heaven. We hope to be united with you one day in the arms of our Lord.

Love,
Rita

Dear Mary,

You are now resting among the angels in heaven! But, while you were here with us on earth I loved seeing you at all the Champions meetings! You made a profound difference in so many lives and you were loved by all!

As I read your life’s history I could tell that from an early age you were an inspiration to all whose path you crossed!

The difference we make in others lives be it family or friends lasts forever!

RIP my dear friend!
