When I think about Mary I think of the word “love”. Mary made everyone feel loved. Her welcoming ways, the endless, easy conversation, the desire to feed us. Little did she know she fed us body and soul.
I have loved looking through the family photos. She was beautiful from the time she was a little girl. Always that same smile.
You will be missed Mary and forever hold a special place in my heart. Thank you for always making me and my girls feel loved.

It is true that when someone passes that you don't remember so much what they have done in life, as how they made you feel. Mary always made me feel appreciated and welcomed, and in the 33 years I knew her, we never had a hard moment. She was love and grace, asking for nothing and giving all. She taught me a lot about the joy of giving to others, and about how to endure the nearly unbearable moments of life. I will always be grateful to her, and I will truly miss her. She was a perfect example of how God wants us to act in this world, and it is emptier now without her.

When one so loved as Mary has left us and we think back through the myriad of every day occurrences, ....the days of our lives, it is sometimes difficult to pin point a "favorite memory". I am so thankful I do have a special one to share. Mary was known for her chicken and dumplings. I asked her to share her secret with me. One beautiful afternoon at Mary and dads home, she made chicken and dumplings with me. I have made them several times since. I have not "Mary" perfected them quite yet but am getting there. I will forever remember the day we had together and the love and expertise she so willingly shared and that I can now share with my own family and friends.

You were loved Mary May Campbell and your loss will leave such a vacancy in our hearts. Rest in everlasting peace.
