She loved to recreate magnificent scenes of peaceful landscapes and tranquil locale. With an exceptional green thumb, Mary also took much joy and pride in her gardening. She would transform her yard into an elegant oasis full of beauty and growth that would rival the best of the best. Mary, lovingly known as "Meme Darling" or "Memaw" to her beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren, was a wonderful mother, grandmother, cook, homemaker, and so much more.

We were so sorry to hear that Ms. Mary had passed. She was our awesome neighbor for many years in Murmil Heights and we loved her and Craig very much. Thinking of all of you during this time.
