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.
