She was very welcoming to anyone who joined the Ludwick clan. My favorite memory is going to her apartment at Sheridan Village and learning how to make my (now) husband's (Michael Costello) favorite dish and hear her story about coming to live in Kansas from Boston (something my own grandmother had done). Thinking of all of her family during this difficult time. Love to all.

Memorable moments in time at Aunt Mary's home start at childhood. It always included fun shared with many, many children. Aunt Mary always had a loving way of communicating to all of us to play and have fun. Now I know that she was always close to God and that reason made me aware of how much she loved us all. Thank you and God Bless you Aunt Mary.

I have great and unforgettable childhood memories of going to visit Uncle Paul and Aunt Marys. We as Art and Peggys clan couldn’t afford to travel often but always felt welcomed. Playing with my cousins and knowing Aunt Mary would feed us some of her delicious food was priceless. I can only strive to share heaven with her one day. Thanks Aunt Mary for the memories!
