To Mary’s family, my heart goes out to all of you. Many found memories of Mary and her siblings starting back in 1969, the year our family moved in next door.
Your loss is truly felt from the miles away. May the Christ she trusted in, be your comfort.
With Love and Prayers,

I will never forget the first time I met Mary. I walked into American Mortgage and she greeted me with a wonderful welcome smile. She had piles of work all around her desk, but that never seemed to bother her. Mary and Alan devoted so much time and effort in helping Matt and I get our first home. I remember Alan and Mary working night and day for us, we even brought paper work over to there house and this opened up time for us to talk about our faith in God. Mary and Alan both prayed for us and we were blessed to finally have our first home. Matt and I are thouched by how much Mary and Alan cared for us as clients and friends. -Alan, you and Mary have made a wonderful team all these years and God has truly made you as one in Christ. I pray you find comfort in knowing that you will always be together with the Holy Spirit inside you. - Love Matt and Mindy Tenhumberg

Mary, you are our bright shining star in the evening light. Your beams will continue to touch the lives of many as they have in the past. Your tender kindness brought a smile to our faces. Your special laugh that would fill the room, your encouragement that you were always ready to give,
the love that you shared with us, the love that you gave to your family. These are just a few of the attributes of your loving spirit that will live on in our hearts. Mary, you knew who to turn to for your strength... Your Lord. Thank you, Mary, for sharing your life with me. With Love, your friend Audrey.

Mary always treated me like family from the first time we met. Even when she didn’t agree with me, she showed me unconditional love and support. I know she’s in heaven. She was truly an angel on earth. And I’ll always cherish the sweet memories we had.

Mary, thank you for always being there for me. You were truly the sister I never had. We talked every day for 35 years and shared every part of life together. You are the reason that I survived cancer. You would send me daily texts “Suck it up Buttercup”, and not let me feel sorry for myself. You were unselfish and gave to anyone what you could. You make me laugh like no other person could. We had our “mean sarcasm” and called each other names that Alan and Chase thought we were serious. We were always trying to make each other laugh. Every single day. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for showing me who a Christian should be. I’m grateful to have shared so much with you. Dance in Heaven and keep laughing until I get there! I love you forever. Your BFF.

I will cherish my high school memories of Mary always. We had great times together laughing and being crazy teenagers. She was a great and loyal friend. She grew into a wonderful woman and mom. She is laughing once again! All my love to her entire family.
