I just found about Mary’s passing. I am so sorry for her loss. I knew her through First Presbyterian Church for many years. First she and John; and the just her, as she gave so much of herself to serve her Lord and her church. I worked there and she was out faithful receptionist and friend. She always had craft projects going. She and I shared knitting tips and lots of yarn. No matter what the task, she was always ready to help. I can hear her welcome to Heaven “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

Thank you so much for sharing your kind words about my grandmother! She loved spending her days at the church and serving others and the Lord. She was a giver and a care taker - I agree, she made us all proud & those words are so true. Thank you - best to you, yours & the church.

Sending love to to ALL of Mary's family - she loved all of you so very much! I met Mary through her Thursday afternoon Canasta card games and got to know her as a lovely lady with SO many talents. I will always cherish my set of coasters she made and think of her as I use them. I just watched the tribute video -it was truly a tribute to Mary and her love for her family. You all have so many precious memories to cherish. I am thankful to have known Mary and to be able to have met some of you in person at her house or through shared photos.
