Memories Timeline


  1. Mary was a kind person, she loved her kids would talk about making pressed cookies with Beth, the adventures of John's dog buddy, and the rides down to Carbondale with Joe to see the boys. She loved you guys so much, she would talk about all of you and her face would light up. What a great coworker, she had that gentle touch that would make patients feel at ease. Prayers go out to your family.

  2. Mary shined with genuine heartfelt kindesss. Such a dynamic, sweet lady who I have had the pleasure of knowing for 30 plus years. Her legacy will no doubt continue on in her family and all those she knew. A true angel.

  3. I met Mary when she was in the St. Paul Choir in Highland. She was a delightful person to know. I always enjoyed chatting with her and missed her when she moved to Greenville. I will keep in her and her family in my prayers.

  4. 28�½�½Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29�½�½and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.- words of our Lord Jesus found at John 5:28,29 ..While I may not know you personally I have experienced the lost of death and the feelings of grief.
