Mary was a ray of sunshine who brought love and joy to everyone’s life. A born caretaker to all, she loved her family and friends fiercely. There is no doubt she is up in heaven talking to everyone. She was everyone’s best friend and first morning call. Mary loved to travel, golf, and being social with friends. The world has lost a true light, but heaven has gained an angel.
