    Mary was such a delight, she was the first neighbor to welcome us to the neighborhood and oh how I enjoyed her craft shows. We have missed her since she moved away and were saddened by here passing. Our heartfelt condolences to her family.

    Mary was the first neighbor to welcome us to Fuller Street 32 years ago. She was a dear friend to our family for many years. Mary loved little children and the funny things that they would say and do. She loved being a grandma and was so proud of Klint and Brandie, and she was so happy when she became a great-grandma. Our kids were so lucky to grow up in a neighborhood where there were so many “grandmas” to spoil them, and Mary was their favorite. There was nothing that Mary didn’t know about gardening and crafting. She had an eye for color and design and loved decorating her cozy home. It was a place where everyone felt warm and welcome. To Van, Kathalee, Klint, Brandie and all the extended family, you have our deepest sympathy.

    Mary was our neighbor and friend for many, many years. She was the sweetest woman and we shared many great times together with her. We missed her so much when she moved away..it was sad to look outside without seeing her in her backyard doing something or stopping to share a conversation. She loved Halloween and always surprised the neighborhood kids as she sat on her front porch dressed as a friendly witch passing out candy. She was so talented in putting together her craft shows that all her friends had to come and see what new things she had made. I enjoyed a cup of tea many times in her kitchen just talking about everything and anything. May she rest peacefully now. Our sincerest condolences to Van and Kathalee and all her family.
