We were deeply saddened to learn of my Aunt Mary's passing. She was such a fabulous Aunt who cared for everyone. I believe Aunt Mary gave everyone a gift, and that was the gift of giving her love to all of us and asking nothing in return. Aunt Mary also gave the gift of encouragement to many of us. She made you believe in yourself to think anything was possible. She definitely showed me how to treat people, as she surely knew how to make people feel special. I love my Aunt Mary. My family loved her and all who knew her loved her as well. I am so happy and so fortunate to have had her in my life. Sometimes, somethings in life you can remember forever. My Aunt Mary is one for sure. We shall never forget her as we will always love and keep her in our hearts forever. May God Bless.

I met my wonderful mother in law one time. That’s all it took for my love to grow. For over 15 years we had deep conversations about our lives. I can’t explain how you can love someone as much as I loved, Mary, but I can honestly say I loved her like a daughter would love her mother. I will miss those phone calls so very much.

Karen, Kevin and family…My deepest sympathy to you and your family. May all your wonderful memories of her be with you forever and know that she is with The Lord and reunited with Grandpa

Stephen Evans

Mom, I shall never forget your wisdom, your laughter, your faith, your always present love and Grace. Never did we not know we were loved. That is a life I was blessed to have. I am going to miss you in ways I can’t yet imagine. I too, am a citizen of Heaven, so one day I will be home too. Until then, I am going to miss you so much.
