Mary was a loving spouse and devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother, showering her family with unconditional love.

She provided her daughters and granddaughters with dresses and gowns from childhood to weddings, through her sewing expertise. Later, she made memory quilts for the daughters and keepsake quilts for the grandchildren. She also loved art and music of any kind, especially when one of her children or grandchildren were performing.
