Ms Mary came to work with me at Holton Community Recreation Center in Columbus Ohio, so I grew to know and love her professionally and personally. Great ideas and compassion flowed from her; never letting personal challenges interfere.
All the while, Ms Mary had a burning desire to be with her grandchildren and other family members; when she left us for Georgia, she left a hole. So pleased we connected on FaceBook!
I've been missing her, we'll all miss her more now.
May you, her family, KNOW and APPRECIATE just how much she loves you, how happy you made her letting her into your hearts.
ALWAYS a beautiful, loving person: inside and out.

She was the sweetest lady. Her smile would light up a room. Only met her on a few occasions but she was a sweetheart. Prayers for the family. She will be missed !!

Mary has been many things to John and I. She always showed her love to us. She would call John and leave a message "Hey cuz just calling to see how you are"

I worked with her at West Broad Nazarene. She started a food cupboard. She never did anything half way.
We will miss her presence on this earth but as she believed there is a life after death. We will meet again. NO DOUBT! Love to the family and may Jesus comfort your hearts.

I have many memories in the short time I knew Mary. We always visited and shared things at Church and the restaurant. I remember her being very worried about the stress at the restaurant for Roger and Michele and the many long working hours. She almost cried one day telling me but God has prevailed! We hold 1 little secret...and I it is sweet! Rest in Heaven sweet Mary!
