Mary was a proud traditional woman and she was admired by many for her loving and caring nature. As a member of the First Church of Christ for 20 years, Mary has exemplified her love of Christ by greeting everyone she met with a hug, smile, and a helping hand. Mary was a second mother to many and a friend to everyone. 

Mary was known county- wide for her delicious cooking, especially her eclaire dessert and homemade pretzels. Mary also loved crocheting, playing bingo, caring for her plants, and she always looked forward to her annual trip to the casino. These are the things she wished to be remembered for.
