She will also be missed by many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Mary was a member of Unity Church of Grand Rapids for several decades, where she made many longtime friends. Mary was a spiritual woman and really enjoyed reading daily scriptures.
She loved to travel- it was her true passion. She lived in different exotic places during the 50’s and 60’s and she learned several different languages. She was fluent in three languages because of her love for traveling and living in different countries.
Mary was so proud of her grandchildren and loved them deeply.
A memorial will be planned by Mary’s family at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made Unity of Grand Rapids, 1711 Walker Ave NW in Grand Rapids.
