Mary was a wonderful friend and the best boss I have ever had. She made work at MATC enjoyable and always had a smile and a laugh. Mary also was a fine competitor in her retirement, and we played Words with Friends and Quiz Planet together online for many years. I will always remember her for her great sense of humor, cheerful attitude, and positive outlook.

I am so so very sorry to hear this. We frequently chatted about our grandchildren. Lilly and Lexi were the shining stars in her life and heart. We were saddened to hear just recently of our friend's passing, Ginny Chybowski, her dear aunt. .
