Mary was the first person we met when moving here from New Mexico. Our first house warming gift came from her, lovely pink and yellow tulips which we enjoy each Spring. She consistantly had the most delightful table setting for our monthly coffees, as well as delicious goodies! Mary always asked about my husband who has health issues even when she was challenged with her own medical worries. Mary sure loved her children and spoke of them often with the sweetest smile. It was joyful being with her while walking to the mail box or just sitting in her front yard chatting. We will miss watching Mary and Bart walking there adorable little Kodi.....a bittersweet change for us all. But like Mary, who modeled grace and strength, we shall embrace her flight to the heavens with a tearful smile and feel so blessed that we had the opportunity to know her as our, Sweet Mary. 💞🌷
With caring thoughts,

In remembering Mary, I often think of the many neighborhood coffees we had in each others homes where we shared family stories and life adventures.

In my mind's eye, I still see her in the early mornings diligently walking little Codi dog past my house to the green space. In the afternoon, it was Bart's turn.

She was a lively kind hearted person who will be missed.

My condolences to her family and friends.

May God bless Mary.

Dear Bart, Terry and all of Mary’s family. You are in my thoughts and prayers through this difficult time. I was a fellow bowler and have missed seeing all. I loved Mary’s competitiveness and good humor. I do believe she rolled a 200 game last season. Take care. Thinking of you

I met Mary through bowling years ago. An athletic woman, who was positive and kind yet loved to beat you. She was a competitor in sports and in fighting her illness. A truly lovely woman who was upbeat and full of grace. She will be missed by many. I was blessed to know her and have many fond memories . My deepest sympathy.

We wanted to take Mary’s pain away, but that was not the Heavenly plan until last Thursday, November 5th, 2020. A few more days and she would have reached her earthly birthday of 83. But, that was not meant to be. Instead she’s going to have the most beautiful birthday with her Lord Jesus on the 13th! We loved Mary for the beautiful woman she was on the inside and out. Caring, sharing, appreciative of all around her, never judgmental, so very strong in her faith and love for you Bart, her family, Jesus and friends(so many over the years)! We were so blessed to be a small part of the larger picture of friends she had! But we felt very much a part of Mary and Bart’s church Framily! Bart we will miss Mary so very much and we know your heart is breaking not to have her by your side! We treasure her memory. We will see you soon and in between when we are able to get together again you will always be in our hearts and prayers! We love you Brother Bart! We send our love and condolences to ALL of the family!!! Dick and Phyllis. Bradsby

To Bart and all of Mary's family,
We loved and respected Mary for so many reasons. She was a wonderful and caring person who was always thinking of the other person. She was truly my best friend and will be missed. Mary was so brave in the last year and still showed her concern for others.
In the past, our time with Bart and Mary included short trips to the mountains, target shooting, bowling, playing cards and enjoying meals at each others homes.

Our deepest sympathy to all her loved ones,
Neal and Linda Gehring
