Loved her laugh! As a teenager, she let me work the old mimeograph machine in the church office. If I was under foot, she never said a word. She always had a smile.
Hugs to the family.

Mark, Leanne and family, we are so saddened to hear about Mary Faye. She was a lovely person, friend and neighbor. She will be missed but know she is at rest with Jesus. Prayers for all. Love Myra, Doug and the Rosser Family.
