My deepest sympathy to Mary's family. Mary, Sally, Helen and I met for dinner once a month for almost 20 yrs. We shared the good times and the not so good. We were supportive to each other and now one of our support team will be missing. Mary will be missed. My thoughts and prayers to all of you.

I went to Southeastern high school with Mary. I moved out of Detroit after graduation in 1961, so I didn't keep in touch with Mary, but I remember she was always smiling in high school. Prayers to her family.

peace and prayers to the family. I remember Mary from working for the City of Livonia. She was in Housing (Newburgh Village) I worked in the Clerk's Office. We were also on the same bowling league. We shared stories about our families and our work experiences. She always stopped by my desk and said hello or waved as she was walking by.

My Dearest Aunt Mary,
Thank you for all the wonderful times we shared together over the years. I especially enjoyed our lunch dates when we would reminisce about our families times together. I know how much you missed your sister Helen. You would always tell me how much you loved my brother John, my sister Suzanne and myself. You were a special Aunt to the 3 of us.
To live in the hearts you leave behind is not to die, but to have eternal life in the happy memories you made together with your loved ones.
We will miss you dearly Aunt Mary, but our love for you will live on forever.
May You Rest In Peace. ❤️

I know Mary's entire family will miss her very much. I remember the day I first met Mary when we began our first day of work together in April 1961 (right after high school graduation) at the Army Corps of Engineers. We became life long friends from that day forward enjoying lots of laughs, shopping excursions, dining out, especially at Mexican Fiesta, casino runs, and meeting Vince Gill. I know the Angels have welcomed Mary home.
Will miss my dear friend so much.
