Becky and family, so sorry to hear of Mary's passing. She was a very special lady and I have such fond memories while growing up in Broadmoor and visiting her at your house. She will be missed. Prayers for peace for you and the family.

Dear Sherri & Becky,
We were saddened to hear that your Mom passed on. You are in our thoughts & prayers. It has to be difficult for you both with everything else you have faced in the past 6 months. Lean on God. He will see you through when others might think you are through. He’ll give you strength to face all the tomorrows.
We Love You, Lanita & Steve

My beloved great aunt Mary was the matriarch of my family. She hosted family reunions and Christmas Day parties for years...always rolled out the welcome mat especially for family.
Aunt Mary always insisted on caring for ill family members without any regard for herself, sometimes for months and on occasion, for years.
Aunt Mary was an avid rescuer of abused and neglected animals. She cared for any creature in need.
I am so fortunate to have loved her and be loved by her. I will always cherish her stories and the time I was able to spend with her.
It comforts me to know that she has joined my Uncle Leo in heaven at last. There indeed must be the greatest family reunion in heaven right now...with Mary and Leo dancing as the band plays on.
