I remember when we first moved to San Diego and the only people we knew were basically Joe and Mary and few people from work. Once Mary found out I had an some dolls that were given to me from my family (they were very old), she started encouraging me to join her Doll Club. I didn't consider myself a doll collector, so I politely declined, but when the doll club's doll show was the following weekend I attended. One of the first people I saw when I arrived at the door was Mary and her sister Clara. Always had a beautiful smile; welcoming people at the door. I asked why they were sitting there she said they were "security". That still makes me chuckle a little. That was the beginning of several years with the doll club, where I was a very active member until moving back to the Midwest. One thing the club could always depend on was that Mary and Clara would be at every function, every meeting, every doll show, they were historians taking pictures and keeping albums for this club. Mary was never one to want to be in the spotlight, but she was always one to work in the background. She was dependable, friendly and always willing to serve. I will miss her. My heart, thoughts and prayers are with the family.
