I don't know what to say. Shocked. I was just doing a simple search of people I knew and found this. She was my boss and commander when I was assigned to DIA in the mid 80's. best boss I ever had. Tough as nails, but fair in every decision she made. She was truly one of a kind. My heart hurts for you and your family.

Craig so sorry for your loss; when I first met "Mother Mary" at Jamboree I was dumbfounded by the overall experience. She was an amazing organizer with hard earned insight and always went to the core of the problem and left the trivia in her wake. I missed not working the Hundredth with you and Mary.God Bless and Care for You and the Family. Chris and Jan Walck
