Mary was a wonderful person and an exceptional volunteer. Her smile could light up a room. We were all blessed to see that smile for the past 20+ years. Mary was a compassionate, kind, passionate and dedicated volunteer. While we will miss Mary, we will all take comfort in knowing she is a special place and deservedly so.

Mary was a sweet and unique lady, always smiling and thinking of others. We always enjoyed having Mary and her family in our home, especially during the holidays when she visited regularly, and of course she would bring her awesome fudge for everyone. We will miss you Mary and see you in Heaven someday! Cookie & James
