To Mary's family:
I worked with her husband, Williams, many years ago at Busby Buick. He was a "mess". I met Mary thru that time and as our lives crossed in Baytown she was a friend. Always a very pleasant person and always a pleasure to talk with at the grocery store or where ever we met. I pray that each of you share your sweet memories and be comforted by these special times. I pray God's comfort on each of you. Sincerely Louise Hanna

Mark and Pat, sorry for you loss. I was blessed to have Mary as my office manager. She was not just an office manager, she was a friend. She loved her work in the dental office and I was the one who benefited. After being away from the US for years, it was again a joy to work with Mary in Dr. James Moore's office. She was a special gifted person who loved her work, loved her family, and loved her friends. It was my gain to have known her and worked with her. My prayers are with you and your family.

Mary was a wonderful person and friend. I got to know her through raising money for a cure for diabetes. She was alway such a sweet and generous person with her time and support. She was a very important person in our community who will be missed. Always loved her sweet smile and laugh. She loved her family and friends. Prayers to the family. God received a wonderful angel.

Dear Mark and Pat,

I am sad to hear of “Mrs. Thulis” passing. When we lost Brian, one of my great friends in my life, a piece of my soul went with him. Mrs. Thulis, as we knew her growing up, was a “mother” to all of us. She was watching over all of us as we grew up in the Eva Maude neighborhood. It is difficult to compare Mary and Betty to others. They were special “givers” and “matriarchs” to the church and to all of us. My sincerest prayers and thoughts go out to you and I will always remember Mary as someone who touched my life in a profound way.

Pat and Family,
I was so saddened to learn of your loss. I was blessed to work with the best. Mary was there for my wedding, my brother’s funeral and even reached out to me when I lost my parents. She always was so kind to my parents and you can bet she is helping everyone smile in Heaven. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Love, Janine Schrock

I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Thulis’ passing. She was so nice to us (Brian’s friends) and made us feel as part of the family whenever we were visiting.

We are so sorry for your loss. Mary was such a kind, beautiful lady. We knew her for many years, doing a job, she always seemed to enjoy and was never too busy for a smile and a greeting.
Our prayers are with you at this time, Bobby and Nelda Fayle
