Life Story Info
Happy travels, Mary. Her service was the same day as Norma Winward's birthday. I found that interesting and thought Mary would think that was interesting as well. She was an amazing friend to my mother, and a friend to me when we then became neighbors. Mary was always quick to laugh, so kind and thoughtful. I have missed her has my neighbor. Rest in peace and love my friend.
