    1. I enjoyed playing cards and bowling with Mary for a lot of years!! She shared her cooking skills with us and everything she cooked was simply delicious!! She will be missed by all who knew her! God bless and comfort her loved ones abd friends.

  1. I always enjoyed Mrs Mary. We had lots of fun bowling together for years. She did my canning on half’s, and baking for me, for many years. I brought the vegetables, jars and lids and she did the labor. We have really missed her. Those were, and will always be, the best tomatoes and soup, we have ever had. Prayers for all her family and friends.
