I knew and loved Mary for the last 30 years at Overland Baptist Church. Sat next to her in choir for 15 of those years and her loving smile and caring attitude lifted my spirits everytime i saw her. She cannot be replaced and will be truly missed in my heart and everyone who knew her. She is singing tenor in the heavenly choir.

Will always remember how you bandaged me up during an incident in the front yard on Edmil during discipleship. And all the Friday nights with the OBC bowling league.
You were one of many 'adoptive' moms to all of us in the youth group. Will definitely keep your memory alive. My prayer is that you and dad will look down and see the happiness, respect and honor someday.

I remember your mom running around with all us crazy girls at Whispering Winds. She provided such happy and wonderful memories of my childhood.

I will always remember Mary's energy and her always being there to lend a hand...she seemed to be tireless. May the Lord bless all who carry the burden of sorrow, and be reminded that there will be a great reunion.

My very deepest sympathy to Steve, Kevin, Cheryl and the family and friends who mourn Mrs. Swope's homegoing. My enduring memories of her are how much she loved her family, singing in the choir, and that smile that could light up a room! She was always quick to lend a hand, and she had a heart of compassion as big as the sky. I am so grateful to have had her presence in my life. She was truly an example of a Godly woman.

I am Mary's baby brother, the youngest of five siblings, and in many ways Sis was a second mother to me as I grew up. (I would like to say I prepared her for Kevin, Steven, Cheryl, and all those grandchildren and great-grandchildren. After me, they were a breeze!) In 1959, when I was six years old, I fell on the ice and suffered a bad head injury, including a major concussion. At that time, she hadn't married Marvin yet, and she was a nurse's aide at the old St. Luke's Hospital on Delmar. She stayed up all night with me to make sure I didn't go into unconsciousness. I remember telling her I was going to be okay--and she fell asleep! Mom and Dad were upset--they wanted her to stay awake--but I recovered...and Mary kept an eye on me as long as she lived. We may miss her now, but we are confident we'll see her again in heaven! Love you, Sis!

I have such fond memories of singing in the choir with Mary at Overland Baptist Church many years ago. She was always so sweet and always smiling and welcoming. She will be greatly missed. Well done Mary....Well done.
