I met Mary 6 years ago while wintering in Florida as her neighbor across the street.. We bonded immediately as if we’d known each other forever.. We shared everything.. Our love of family, travel, bingo, toys and especially dolls..We played as if we were children..she always had to be the grandma an I was always the mom..we would laugh for hours at the crazy things we did together..an couldn’t wait to plan our next adventure..I will miss her spirit. laughter and love but I will carry her memory in my heart forever..I Love You Always Mary..

I first met Grandma the day I met her grandson Ryan Chewning. The day I met this fun, energetic, and absolutely kind soul, I knew I was hooked on her energy. When Ryan introduced me and Grandma she started crying because she was so happy to meet me! (What a compliment right?)
Over the years Ryan's Grandma became my thrift store buddy, my Olive Garden date, and my Grandma as well. She was the kindest and most giving woman on earth and I am so lucky that I was part of her life.
Grandma raised the best kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. She had an open home and welcomed everyone with open arms.
But most importantly Grandma raised the man of my dreams, the one I was waiting for, my soulmate. She poured her heart and soul into raising Ryan.
Grandma you are loved and missed daily. The world isn't as bright without you. Thank you for accepting me as your own and being a wonderful and kind soul. I love and miss you dearly.

Mary you will be so missed. You were the best clogging teacher, friend, but most of all the most loving person I ever meet. Have fun clogging up in heaven. You are loved.

Jessie and I met Mary when we joined the Sugarfoot Family Cloggers. Even though I haven't seen her for several years, I have thought about her often. We loved her and know that she is clogging in Heaven. Our sympathies go out to her family.
Robyn, Ray and Jessie
