Mary had a lot of friends. She loved gardening, quilting, being with her family on the Table Rock Lake where she and Fred retired in 1984. She was an avid photographer of nature. She loved to read. She had one of the most beautiful gardens all around their house. She liked making crafts and going for walks. No matter the time of day, if you were hungry, she would cook!

Mary was loved by all who knew her, friends and family alike. The Lord received a special lady and now she can be with her family in heaven, waiting on the rest of her loved ones to join her.
