Family was of paramount importance to Mary. She was fiercely devoted to her family and continually self sacrificed to assure they were well taken care of and happy. She had all the time in the world for a mug of tea and a parental ear. Mary took great pride in her grandchildren and tried hard to teach them in preparation for success in life.
Mary had an extraordinary ability to make everyone feel special. Mary was a dedicated ‘dog mom’ and also enjoyed feeding the wild birds that would visit her yard.
