Fond Northside memories of a very nice lady. Grew up with Donna and Mrs. Marcott always made you feel welcome when you visited their Grant St. home. Rest in peace.

I loved Mary. I worked with her for years and we would sometimes laugh until we cried. Her wit was her most endearing feature. Oh, the stories I could tell! I called her "Mouse" as she reminded me of a cute little mouse. I have a greeting card that went back and forth between us for about 20 years. Miss you Mouse!
