I am so sorry to learn of Mary’s passing. I had the great pleasure of working with her and her daughter Tracey at Baker Hughes. Mary was one of the kindest and most generous people I ever worked with. She was always smiling and went out of her way to help everyone any way she could. My prayers and condolences to the family. Rest In Peace Mary ❤️

I worked with Mary 14 years until her retirement. Her daughter Tracey and I worked together and formed a wonderful life long friendship. My best memories of Mary was her smile. You never saw Mary in the hallways or around the office that her face didn't brighten up with a smile that took all your present worries away. You could stop a moment, have a quick chat and enjoy that smile. It literally brought your day up. Mary you will be missed by many. The Lord has welcomed you home where there is no more pain and nothing but smiles and happiness!

6 kids and Mom and Dad (8 of us) and 1 bathroom. Need I say more. 4 boys 2 girls. Mary and Jimmy (twins) were the last born after 4 siblings. Mary was the smallest in the family but we had a name for her “Toughy Brazoon”. She held her own with all those boys. Mary and I hated having to wear dresses to church (we were TomBoys). The beach was a short drive and during the summer we went every day. Mom sure knew what to do with all that “energy”. It was Jimmy who taught me and Mary how to swim in the ocean- there’s a trick to it. We were all in the same Catholic school and the Nuns just called us the Moore Kids. Mary leaves Jimmy and I, as the other boys all died tragically. Mom’s Faith and belief in God stayed with Mary and me after losing 3 boys. Mary has now joined them in Heaven but not as a toughy but a sweet loving Mama to Tracey and Grandma to Yvonne and Nathan. I will miss my sissy but at least I know where she is. I luv you, Sis. Patti or PJ.
