Mary loved to cook and was well respected for her BIG Sunday Dinners! She greatly enjoyed spending time with her family and especially her grandchildren. She enjoyed fishing and all the gifts of Mother Nature, especially watching the humming birds. She was always ready for a road trip and hoped it would include a trip to her favorite place, Pierre Marquette State Park. She would relax coloring and listening to Christian music. Her greatest time was spent with her friends and family and always enjoyed the chance to make new friends.
A kind and Loving women who meant so much the world to so many, she will be forever loved and remembered.
