Mary was a loving wife and caring mother who loved her family with all her heart.  She found great joy in the simplest of things, but her greatest joy was family.  She enjoyed and took great pride in her flowers, gardening and her home.  Mary grew up in the Northeast and Pin Hook Communities and graduated from Chinquapin School.  After graduation Mary continued her education in the field of nursing.  She practiced as a nurse until she reached the age of 70.  Mary will surely be missed but cherished memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
