Mary will live on in my memories. She was a sweet southern lady that did so much for all she came in touch with. Her beautiful smile was like sunshine that filled ever room she entered.
I will miss her.

I worked with Mary for several years at the Social Security Administration. I was a new employee and she was a great help in my training and always very patient. She was a gracious and classy lady. I'm so sorry to hear of her passing.

It is always difficult to say the correct words when an active sister of UDC plus so many more activities passes on. I am sure you will be greatly missed by so many family members and friends.

I am so sorry to see about the loss of Mary.
Mary and I were roommates at Henderson State University.
I have fond memories of Mary.
My favorite memory is...we were riding around and Mary kept turning up the radio because her car was making a terrible noise. The car had a flat tire!
Praying for Jack and all of Mary's family.

I will miss Mary's quiet and sweet disposition at UDC meetings. She was truly a Southern lady and always there for the organization. She also would stand with you and help you in anyway she could. She will be missed.
