Please know that Mary will be in our prayers. She was a thoughtful wonderful woman who will be in our thoughts.
Tim and Deb, I’m so sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. In the short amount of time we’ve known each other, I grew to adore her. She had such a positive attitude and was so funny. She was quite independent and never missed an opportunity to go outside and enjoy the sun. I will miss seeing her.
Christine and Thomas Tubbert
Your thoughts on Mary so mirrored ours. A funny, most memorable person. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love, Chris and Tom
