Aunt Mary was the closest person I had to a mother. I loved her very much. She was not only kind and loving, she was always so energetic and always so positive. Her faith meant so much to her which I hope made her passing more peaceful . God Bless

We are so sorry to hear of Mary's passing. I will always remember the times that that Mary and John and Olga and Dan would come to our house and play cards with my parents and hearing all the laughter and fun they were having. Mary always had a smile on her face. We also had great neighborhood picnics with tons of kids running around having a blast. Rest in peace Mary and say hi to my dad. We send our prayers and condolences to Beth Ann and Mark and their families.
