Memories Timeline


  1. Many people have blessed my life, but Mary is one of the select few at the top of my list of people dear to me. She was loved by so many because she selflessly loved so many. She will be missed. My sympathy and prayers to her family.

  2. My dear "Aunt Mary": I had no knowledge of your passing until Tuesday, April 19, 2005! I would have been there if I had known!!!! Please remember you will always hold a very special place in my heart as you cared for me and loved me during my tender first years of my life. Jo Ann (Gruner)
