Mary was such a nice, humble lady with a genuinely sweet smile. I remember her from my days at Uniondale UMC and the many activitied going on. She was always eager to volunteer when the church needed help.

When I was part of the youth group, she helped us raise money by paying two of us to come out to her house and wash windows.

My thoughts and prayers to all of you. She has a special place in my memories.
