I worked with Mary for many years in Henrico HR. She was the kindest woman you will ever meet and such a dear friend to all that knew her. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jack and her family. God certainly gained an angel.

Mary and I worked together at Henrico Human Resources. She was such a loving and caring person. She was a dedicated employee who always paid attention to detail to make sure employees were paid correctly. We had lost touch after retirement and my move from Henrico but I thought of her often. Prayers to you Jack and the rest of her family.
