Mary supported Marion with the family farm and homemaking. She was modest, funny, hard-working, and caring. She made excellent homemade beef and noodles and Salisbury steak. She mashed potatoes from her garden and deviled eggs from her chickens. She loved hosting summer get-togethers and Christmas parties.

Above all Mary was devoted to family. She remembered everyone’s birthdays, anniversaries, wedding dates, and family history. She treasured family photos and posted them prominently throughout the home. Even when her health declined, she kept in touch with cards or a phone call. She will be greatly missed.
