M A R Y F R A N C I S A L L I S O N Arizona born, she treasured her home of 48 years in Laveen, Raising six children and touching the lives of so many others, Year after year, her family grew- whether by relative or friend,

For without a thought, everyone was welcomed with open arms. Remembering those of her past, exploring her history, And being so proud of her children and grandchildren, No one valued family and friendship more than Mary. Creating so many wonderful memories with each gathering, Instilling in all of us the importance of family, She showed us the love in her heart every day.

All of us will remember Mary with love, Lasting memories that will stay with us for our lifetime. Late night ice cream, 4-H trips, and clogging performances, In the garden tending sweet peas and roses, Smelling the fresh aroma of her famous Thanksgiving rolls, Or how she gathered us all for photos, knowing, No one will ever forget the time we spent.

For the longest time I didn't even know my Aunt's name. Growing up we always heard her called Sis (obviouslly we now know why as it was her brothers (our fathers) calling her that) It was always so much fun going to Aunt Sis's house. I milked my firt cow there, we played many Thanksgiving softball games there and simply to enjoy the welcoming picture filled atmosphere. Her smile and laughter will truly be missed.
