I remember Mary. She was Sallys’ and Charlies’ Mom and the smiling cafeteria lady. She was the lady that fixed your cuts and scratches when you fell off your bike in front of her house.  I moved away for 45 years. When I visited the past 5 years, she remembered who I was. We had visits and lunches, Sally, Mary, my Mom and I. We would reminiscence of days gone by. Mary was loved by many and will be missed by many.

I have such fond memories of Mary.  I drove her to church with my son’s years ago.  I still can’t drive past her street without smiling.  She was aN incredible gently spirit with a lovely laugh.  We would talk gardening, cooking and family.  My boys and I were truly blessed to get to know her.  Your family is our prayers.  God bless

Our thoughts are with Mary’s family. She was always a very good friend of my mother and a good listener on the phone for years. We will always keep her in our thoughts and prayers.
