Their companionship was unique in its endearing closeness, and their affection for each other. Some of their greatest joys were working together on their endless projects, planning their future adventures, and relaxing on their porch talking for hours and hours. Together they raised their two kids, Matt and Cory, but also inspired their kid’s friends as an example of how to love their spouses, kids, and friends. Everyone that had the joy of getting to know her affectionately called Aunt Mary or Grandma Mary.

Mary was an artist, and everything she touched turned into something of elegance. She loved to travel and planned every detail of every adventure she went on.

Mary (and Bobby) were like a second set of parents to me growing up. They were always welcoming and had such a warm and loving home. I always enjoyed spending time with them. The love they shared remains an inspiration to me for my marriage. Sorry I can't be at the service. I will keep y'all in my prayers. God bless,
