She loved to socialize with everyone. She sewed dresses and clothes for her kids, grandkids & great-grandkids. She also shared her love for Square dancing, round dancing, travel, her family, gardening, and GOD.
Mary was a former WAF, Women in the Air Force, during the mid-’50s then left to work as a Civil Service employee for the rest of her career.
Her life was a living example of one of her favorite Bible verses, Ephesians 4:32 — “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”
