Sorry to hear of Mary's death. She was always coming to Hallie's and my daughter's band performances and never failed to visit and say hello. I will always remember her from that. Condolences to her family. Best wishes.

Mary was such a warm, giving person. Some of my best memories are of the times we spent at Perry Central as substitute teachers. Her love for the children was wonderful and we shared a lot of laughs at the stories they told us! Rest in Peace dear friend!

I had the privilege to know and work with Mary for 12 years in the Federal Bureau of Prisons. She was a kind and caring person. Our humanity will be less without her. My deepest sympathy to her family members and close friends.

We will miss Mary very much. She was such a rock. So kind hearted and genuinely loved and cared for others. Her warm loving smiles and jokes and her giggles. If each of us could be more like Mary.. her love showed through her and condolences to your family. May God heal your heart.
Prayers for you during this difficult time.
