Mary had a deep faith and it was seen through her dedication to the Sacred Heart Parish as a long-time member with the CWL.  She enjoyed her sewing group for the mission and her ladies day card club.  She loved her vegetable and flower gardens and also loved to bake and cook. Anyone that visited knew they wouldn’t go home empty-handed.  She loved to give.  Her greatest love was her children and grandchildren who also adored her.
