Mary was in our Immaculate Conception Centering Prayer Group for many, many years and was beloved by all members of our group. She was a dear friend, kind and gentle lady, and faithful woman of God. She will never be forgotten. May she rest in peace. - Maryellen

In 2004 Richard and I were fortunate to have a visit from Mary, Sue and Rosemary (along with their chauffeur Bob). My playful horse Dickens zeroed right in on Mary's positive and happy spirit. I will always hold her in my heart in that light.

Maureen, Peggy, Tim, Rosemary, Susan, and Richard, I would like to express my deepest sympathy at the loss of your mother and sister. She was a great lady who personified grace and faith. My husband and I paid her a visit last year traveling from LaCrosse, Wisconsin to Springfield Missouri to deliver to Mary a frosting flower from her wedding cake. A frosting flower that was over 60 years old. You see, I had the honor of Being the flower girl in her wedding. I was given the frosting flower and put it in a little box with tissue to keep it safe. Because it was still in pristine condition, I wanted to deliver it to her in person and I am sure glad we did. That little frosting flower brought us together with a couple days of wonderful memories and stories with her and her sisters and their spouses. REST IN PEACE, MARY. You will Be remembered forever!❤️💛💙..............Pat
