As Aunt Mary’s nephew Michael Juarez remembers Aunt Mary as a loving and caring Aunt. During my years of knowing her I saw her as a cheerful and joyful aunt who always strove to stress the importance of family and family values. Connie Juarez and I were also most impressed with her creative abilities in decorating and maintaining her home.
