Mary always had a smiley hat lit up a room,a story to tell, an ear to lend or a quick quip to liven up the YMCA water aerobics class at the Days Inn, that I was the instructor for. She did amazingly well taking care of herself as a classy lady, along with her "board of directors" her family that we could all tell wanted what was best for her. A light has gone out on earth yet I am sure she is lighting up heaven. Remember the happy moments with Mary as this is how she would wish to be remembered.

To Mary's family, (her board of Directors, as she called them) it was a pleasure to meet little Mary. I came to know and love her at our water aerobics class at Day's Inn. There was never a dull moment when she was there. I was amazed how she got around for her age. But most of all, her compassion for her family. She loved you all dearly. She kept us up on what the family was doing. She knew everyone. Mary you will be sadly missed, but Heaven got a beautiful angel. Rest In Peace, sweet Mary
