She was a lovely and beautiful lady, a devoted wife and mother, a model Catholic. My prayers to all the family as she joins George at God's table in heaven.

I knew Mary through my mom and dad, Mary and Charron Smith. I would sit with them at their 55 and over luncheon from time to time. My father and l went to their 60th wedding anniversary party. Dad was very close to George and knew him since before he married. My dad knew who George was marrying before he said her name. I'm sorry for your loss. You had great parents. Now their all sitting at lunch in heaven

Dear Mike, Libby and family,

Barry and I were sad when we heard that Aunt Mary had passed away. Aunt Mary always made us feel special and welcome whenever we saw her.
My last visit with her was in early March, just before the Covid shut down took place. I walked to where she was watching TV with several other residents and she immediately said, "Nancy, how did you find me ?" I knew she hadn't forgotten me. She cried so hard and kept saying I'm glad you came to see me and that you found me. We talked about her brother, who is my Dad and she recalled his name. It made my heart glad.
I will always remember that last visit.
I'm sure she found all of our family and your Dad who greeted her with her wings. Another angel to watch over all of us.
We will miss her.
May you all know God's peace and comfort as you grieve the loss of your Mom.
Nancy and Barry.

So many memories...one of the best was making the bridesmaids dresses for Lynn and Jim's wedding! It was a LOT of sewing, but Mom Yancho made it FUN! She also listened well and gave really good advice 😊

So many loving memories of your mom and grandmother. She welcomed me into the fold from the very beginning. I never witnessed anything but love and kindness from Mary. She was truly a walking testament to her faith.

My heartfelt condolences to all of the family - she was loved by so many I am sure there are many aching hearts right now. You will have cherished memories to last your lifetime.
