Birth: 1933
Death: 1992

WHEN MARY SUE WAS BORN IN 1933 THERE WERE NO REAL GOOD IDEAS OF HOW TO CARE AND DEAL WITH DOWN'S SYNDROME CHILDREN AS THERE ARE NOW. AS A MATTER OF FACT, MARY SUE'S MOTHER, EDITH, WAS DISCOURAGED BY DOCTORS IN DOING ANYTHING FOR MARY SUE. EDITH TOOK THE OPPOSITE APPROACH AND TRIED TO TEACH MARY EVERY THING SHE COULD ABSORB, AS A RESULT MARY BECAME A VERY ACTIVE AND CREATIVE INDIVIDUAL. SHE HAD AN ARTISTIC FLAIR AND WAS VERY CONVERSANT. SHE WATCHED SOME TV AND WOULD TELL YOU MANY STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE ON TV. EDITH WAS A SEAMTRESS AND SO MARY HAD A LARGE COLLECTION OF PIECE GOODS WHICH SHE WAS VERY PROUD OF. MARY DID HAVE ONE HEALTH ISSUE AND THAT WAS UPPER RESPATORY INFECTIONS. THE WISDOM OF THAT TIME WAS THAT SHE WOULD DIE AT AN EARLY AGE. EVEN THIS WAS INCORRECT AS SHE LIVED 59 YEARS DUE IN GREAT MEASURE BY THE CARE SHE RECEIVED.
MARY HAD A BOUNCY AND CHEERFUL PERSONALITY. ONE TIME SHE BEGAN SINGING A POPULAR TUNE CALLED "I'M GOING TO GET YOU ON A SLOW BOAT TO CHINA ALL TO MYSELF ALONE", AT FIRST NO ONE COULD FIGURE OUT WHY SHE WAS INTO THAT SONG. LATER IS WAS DISCOVERED SHE WAS REFERRING TO HER GOOD FRIEND, MARY J. MARY WAS HER FAVORITE ADULT FRIEND AND SHE WANTED TO GET HER ONTO THAT SLOW BOAT ALL TO HERSELF ALONE!
FINAL CAUSE OF DEATH WAS PNEUMONIA. SHE WAS SURVIVED BY HER MOTHER AND FATHER, EDITH AND LEROY. LEROY FOLLOWED MARY IN DEATH JUST A FEW MONTHS LATER.
