My sympathies go out to the family for the loss of this great mother. I spent many days at the house with Mary and learned so much from her working in the kitchen. My memories of the food at St Joe's was that it was always amazing, including the buns and cookies! I remember watching her one day at the house while waiting for Mary to get ready, on how I didn't need to boil the lasagna noodles. Used that trick every since!
She will be missed!

Dear Albert Family,
Many Happy memories shared with your Mom / Wife Doris working as lunch ladies in St. Joseph's School Cafeteria together. We shared lots of good times and became forever friends. After her retirement from St. Joe's she would pick me up and we would go walking at the mall and have lunch with the girls. She was a Wonderful Friend and she will be dearly missed. My Heart is with you All. Love Mrs. Gilbert
