            Mary Jane was a loving and genuine friend to everyone she met. She had an infectious smile that brought light to everyone around her. Everywhere she went her presence brought joy and comfort. She enjoyed puzzles, playing cards with friends and family and embroidery. Being with her family and cuddling with dogs brought her great joy. In her younger years, she loved going camping and sitting in her lawn chair in the river. The memories she left will never fade and will continue to be cherished by all who knew and loved her.
