While I am deeply saddened by Mary's passing, I am strengthened in my faith. Mary Smith was more than a stalwart Christian. While none of us are sinless, Mary tried, I think to get above and beyond that human element. She was often a volunteer for many things in Wells county and in Markle. But, my memories are from Mary 30 and 40 years ago. I think many can attest to Mary's assertiveness in many things? It was her strength, but also sometimes a point of contention.

Although many things remain in my memory about Mary from 35 years ago or so, what remains in my memory was her fight and persistence and her stubbornness.... over the past 15 years.

I know, that Mary will be with all saints, in presence of Christ.

Mary was the kindest person. Loved when she would come over to her sister Marjorie house and we would get to chat.
The sweetest lady!
Many memories from years ago.
Marjorie and Mary will be reunited and in the loving arms of Jesus
Prayers to the entire family.
