Just found out about Mary. I am so sad for Jim. Mary was a regular Bingo player at St Williams for years. This past year she was a big help to me on the forth week and did the cash . I am really so sorry that she passed away. Gerry St William Bingo

So many fond memories of a warm and loving woman. Will never forget how she taught my oldest granddaughter how to fish. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her husband, Jim, and he knows that he always has an open invitation for whatever.
