Not knowing Mary that well, there isn't much I can say, but knowing members of her family and hearing stories of her life,
I know she is in Heaven and without pain. So there is rejoicing in our souls.

Mama Mary was definitely one of a kind and pretty amazing.
She was one of the strongest woman we have ever met with a big heart.
Our lives are better for having her in it, she will be missed by many and never forgotten.
Much love always Tim and Jenn

Eddie and David,   so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you.

July 23rd we laid Mary to rest. The family gathered to pay their last respects, and the friends came.

A dinner was held at San Juan UMC Social Hall with members of Henderson and San Juan helping.
The tables decorated with vases and flowers.  Blue table cloths for the seating tables and Red tablecloths for the serving tables. Mary's favorite colors.
Thank you to Janet and Ola Mae for all their preparing.
Family and friends gather to fellowship and share memories of Mary
