Peter, we were Mary's neighbors at 719 N. 4th, from 1997 to 2011. I was the Lutheran pastor at Holy Spirit, up at 4th and Windsor. We are sorry to hear of her passing. We always enjoyed talking with her about things in the neighborhood: the cats, the birds and other neighbors. She always enjoyed to birds that gathered at the feeder we put out. tyna says that she did a very authentic cardinal call!

Too bad we were not there. I would have been happy and privileged to take part in her funeral if we had been nearby. Nevertheless, we share our sympathies with you and wish you well. Blessings, Pastor Bob Kaltenbaugh and tyna Kaltenbaugh

Peter, Noel and James,
I am so very sorry for the loss of Mary. She was a wonderful lady and a dear friend. I enjoyed our shopping night visits. She was a very special person and I am glad to have known her
