Aunt Mary never complained, her common response when asked, “how do you feel?” was always the same, “I’m fine “. She was the sweetest and most unselfish person I ever knew. Words can never fully express how much she will be missed. Rest In Peace Aunt Mary! I love you...

She loved her family fiercely and unconditionally. The most selfless and beautiful soul inside and out, with a sassy and hilarious side that made her so special. Words cannot describe how much she will be missed.
