She was deeply loved and will be greatly missed. She was generous in lending a helping hand or giving to those in need. Mary enjoyed listening to the Gaither Vocal Band and other gospel music. Mountain Dew was her signature drink and she always looked for something sweet after dinner. Her laugh was contagious and she sure was a hard worker. All who knew her were blessed to be a part of this lovely woman’s life. We look forward to the day we will see her again in Heaven!

My sister Mary was a light in my life. When I needed her most, she was there for me. I loved being at her house, watching her cook, sew, can fruits and vegetables, but most of all love her children. She lost 3 sons, 3 sons, somehow kept going, raising her remaining children to strong loving, kind adults, just like her. She did not live a charmed life, but she made the best of her life. In later years I think she found some happiness in the small things. She never complained about anything, I rarely saw her mad, and very quick to laugh. I will love her forever. Sister Sue
