Miss Mary was in my Red Hat Chapter, The Belles of Scarlett. All of us loved her so much. She was such a wonderful lady and a great friend. I will miss her every day. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Miss Mary, you were one of the sweetest ladies in redhatting. Always had a big smile and kind words. Our loss is Heaven's gain. Bet you are busy trying to put redhats over all the angels halos. You will be missed.

I remember Aunt Mary taking Ronnie, Laura and I on this large slide where you had to sit on a burlap bag, many visits when we would travel to NC, the many family reunions she would host at Lake Norman. But most of all her love for family . RIP Aunt Mary, love you.

The best memory I have of Mary is working in her beloved garden. I brought her a little flower cart ornament to add to her
other decorations, she was so excited and loved that I thought of her. I used to pop in every so often and bring breakfast or just coffee & a doughnut to surprise her. Of course when she joined my Red Hat chapter years ago she loved to dance!
She was always cheerful, everybody loved Mary! She will be missed.
