    Mary Winterwerp was one of the sweetest and most gracious of friends I have ever had. Our families spent many occasions together either boating, fishing, playing cards, eating crabs, church meetings. Mary was a delightful hostess and a great cook. Her love for her husband, children and family was always a priority for her. Heaven is certainly blessed with this lovely angel now. My life is richer for having known such a wonderful person. We love you Mary.

    Dear Mr. Winterwerp and all of the Winterwerp family,
    I'm so sorry for your loss. I have many great memories of Mrs. Winterwerp from when I was a kid growing up in Baden and all the various church and firehouse events.
    I know you all will miss her dearly. Cherish the memories and she will forever live in your hearts.

    There are some people you never forget--Mary is one of them. Mary was a kind and thoughtful person. Mary & Carl were some of the first people I met when I moved to Baden, Maryland. What great neighbors and fellow church members they were. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time of loss. Treasure your wonderful memories.
    God bless you and give you peace.

    Love & God Bless

    I am glad I got to spend time with Aunt Mary in Massanutten Va last October. We had a lot of Fun.
    Aunt Mary really enjoyed playing Skip-Bo.
    We had some good times:
    Playing Tripoley, Eating Crabs, and the
    Mother Daughter Banquets
    Aunt Mary...Hugs and Kisses to you always
    I will always have you in my Heart
    Now you are an Angel in Heaven
