Jeannie and Family, please know our hearts and prayers go out to you during this difficult time. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting your wonderful Mother, but still recall the memories, along with the funny stories you have shared about she and your Dad as well. May God Bless you all.

We are truly saddened for the loss the whole Gasser clan endures. But from what the family has relayed there was not a more prepared and willing Christian woman to meet her maker, and the service will be a true celebration of her loving life and role as wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and know that together they will carry each other through this difficult time,

In loving memory to my once other mother. I miss the days of loading the old station wagon and heading to town for groceries. We would laugh until we hurt. She was truly a very Blessed Lady and I will miss her deeply. My Prayers are with all the Family espcially Gene. She was his world. God Bless. Gwyn

Mary was a wonderful wife, Mother and Grandmother. I have watched the love she has for all her family, and they have had for her. It is a tribute to her to watch how much her family has respected and treated her so well over the years. She is with the Lord now, but not far from her beloved family.
