I am so sorry for your loss! I remember Mary as a lady with a lot of spunk and vigor. She was loved by all of us a Lake Area Recovery Center. We will miss her and will keep the family in our prayers.
I worked with Mary at Family Recovery Center and at State TI. I loved Mary’s spirit. She always made me laugh. She had the best giggle I ever heard. I truly believe Mary tried as hard as she could to love herself. I only wished she could have seen herself as her friends saw her. She was a wonderful, talented, loving person and she will be missed by all of us.
To her family and friends, I’m so sorry that we have lost such a gifted, fun loving person.
I’am so sorry to hear of your lose. Mary was a wonderful person and I learned alot from her-I will miss her.
Mary will be greatly missed. I worked with Mary ant LARC.
my deepest condolences to Mary’s family, robin green
Miss Mary could brighten up a room just by walking in, her smile would make everything seem wonderful, Her giggles were contagious. I can still smell the coffee she would brew in her office, it was an inviting scent that seemed to draw people right to her. Ya always knew when mary was back in the office the smell of coffee brewing, some really good tunes and her contagious gigle. She taught me how to teach, how to accept things for how they were and enjoy the real beauty in them. She was truely a precious gift sent her to touch us all. I’ll never forget the burnt toast or the day she picked up Avery and I from group with the A/C blasting and ice cold popsicles to cool us down. So many memories all of them wonderful. Miss Mary sleep peacefully, I know one day I will see your smile again and that will be a day for celebration and of course dancing. Agape love always, Tracy
Miss Mary touched my life in a way that only a few treasured friends do within one’s lifetime.
She was my dance instructor, my shopping adviser, my movie buddy, my giggle partner.
She is a true friend, whom I love. She taught me how to shine, love, accept and laugh.
There are too many memories to share, I will treasure each one just as I treasure Miss Mary.
All my love as you sleep with your angels, Miss Avery
Miss Mary will be sadly missed but fondly remembered in many hearts. We had a lot of fun together. No one had better parties or made me laugh as hard. I remember her patience when her and Carol Harvey tried to teach me to dance that Ragae dance thing and sway my
butt in an Sess I kept trying and Mary kept saying” Girlfriend, that ain’t no ess” We laughed and tried for hours. She was my neighbor for a while on Jefferson Avenue and her apartment was a great place to escape to when I had a hard time. She was a beautiful lady with a big heart and she loved the kids she worked with. I always loved when we worked together at the Aware class because we got down and had those clients confessing to things they didn’t even do. She always took her time to listen and was a real friend. She was my secret pal one time and I was hers and she bought the best gifts. I have them still all over my house. She was there to support me when Gabi was born and when I made a decision to leave with Lloyd. She interviewed him to see if he was good enough for me. Then she asked him if he had a brother. Oh, the memories go on and on and I can’t even begin to express my sorrow over this great loss. Mary, you have touched my heart in a special way and you will always be a part of who I am. You are free now to fly with the angels and to find the peace you have looked for. I love you Mary.
