I met Mary on line a few years ago while working on my genealogy and she was very helpful . I could tell automatically she was a very kind and giving person. We eventually hooked up on facebook and I had hope to meet her one day in person after my husband's retirement come this September.
I know her family is grieving deeply , and I hope each one receives comfort knowing the fact her beautiful spirit is very much alive in heaven with our Lord, Jesus Christ, and all those she loved who went before her.
My deepest sympathy and may the Lord comfort you now and always.

I have worked for Mrs. Mary Mason for over 13 years. Throughout the years I have seen her work on crafts and some of which she has given me and which I will forever treasure. She was always a very sweet, attentive person to everyone she encountered. She is loved and will be missed greatly by all of those who have been lucky to have known her.

Mary was such an enthusiastic, sweet and extremely loving human being. She always made my mother Chuy feel as if she were a part of her family. My father Lorenzo passed away almost 8 years ago and we will never forget all her kind words and actions at such a difficult time for us. The handmade treasures she gifted us will always remind us of her beautiful soul ♥️

My first impression of Mary is how I will always remember her. She had an infectious smile and laugh, with eyes that danced in merriment! After walking through the valley of sorrow and despair, she and Mike reconnected. What ecstasy we all felt for Mary, who was especially beloved of God. Mike and Mary have been so perfect together. My heart breaKs for all who adored Mary, but especially for Mike. I never see turquoise without seeing Mary. Or Siamese cats. Or well laid out photos and scrapbook paper and hand stamped artwork. Mary had an amazing intellect plus creativity in abundance. She was indeed a unique woman of faith and friend.

We fell in love with Mary from the first time we met. Our love and respect for her only grew over time. She was blessed with many happy days with Mike. It is hard to believe that such a gentle, caring lady is gone. She truly left footprints on our hearts.

What a beautiful and cheerful soul each time I would encounter sweet Mary! Always upbeat from days
as long ago as "high school days" to the present, a very caring and grateful person. The best memory I will always and forever cherish is when Mary married Mike, and yes he was indeed the absolute love of her life, Mike is my cousin, and seriously, I do not believe I have ever seen Mike smile as much as he has in his whole life once he and Mary married. What an example of "pure joy" these 2 lovebirds always displayed. I know without a doubt Mary, you have taken you seat at the feet of OUR KING JESUS!!

Mary’s bright smile matched her bright colors of clothing she wore.
My happy memories of your laughter, combined with your colorful clothes will make me smile each time I think about you Mary!
I’m pretty sure those glorious colors in HEAVEN are making you smile.

I was very touched with how lovingly Mary spoke of Mike. Her face lit up as she recalled how they met as children. It was very special to witness the love that Mike and Mary had for one another. Their love story was so incredibly special to them both. They both treasured their rekindled love and it brought me much joy to witness their connection. Thinking of Mary's family during this difficult time. We are sending our love and support from Virginia.
