I have fond memories of Mary. She was a very pretty and sweet lady. She was very nice to me when I was a kid. My parents (Jack and Carolyn) and she and her husband were good friends. I send sympathy and love to her family.

My Sympathy to all of you. I was in High School with Mary, we kept in touch at Christmas time up until last year.She was a wonderful lady, I had tried to get in touch with her about three weeks ago because she had been on my mind. Every time she wrote she talked about her family. How proud she was of all of you . She always asked about my husband (Dick)and my daughter (Julia). My Love and Sympathy Rose Bennett Prior Aurora Coilorado
