Mary was an old fashioned "lady" with lots of spunk & get & go. Both my boys, Lynn Jr . & Dan worked with Mary at the Canton P & C, always having a good word for her. Mary always had a smile & a joke ready for everyone. Rest in peace, Mary.

Aunt Mary was a wonderful Aunt. She opened her heart and home to me and my sisters multiple times, along with the best cinnamon buns you would want. We were fortunate to live so close to her. She shared her love and faith with us too. We have so, so many memories of her. The distance between us was far, but we kept in touch. The love was always close by.

Sorry Family I am not able o be there but know that you are all in my heart.

Love, Randie and Rick
