I cannot put 51 years of cherished memories into this space. Mary and a few other CHS classmates were my first friends to Conroe in 1970. Mary has been in every aspect of my life and I will miss her more than words can convey. She was kind, loving, considerate, compassionate but even more than those traits that made her unique was her never waving faith in Jesus which she shared in every part of her being. To us, she was like a sister and an aunt God blessed us with and a faithful prayer warrior. To give me peace and comfort, in my mind, I picture her seeing Jesus as she left this life, running to Him with open arms and next greeting all the saints with that same smile and love she gave us on earth. "We will see you later sis".

We will always remember Mary Margaret’s kindness and her beautiful smile. She was one of the sweetest people we knew. We have fond memories of sitting behind her and her mother on Sunday mornings in the balcony. She will be missed by all who knew and love her.
