So sorry for your loss. Knew Mary for many years, when we both lived on Cold Brook Road at Webber's Park. May God give you peace and comfort. Sincerely Helen Trimm
I am very sorry to hear about the loss of Mary. My family and I knew her well, we had tea with her, listened to her stories, and often helped her when the weather was not on her side. She was a wonderful woman and I am sad she has passed, but happy that I have been blessed to have her in my life. Kaylean Contento
Mary was a wonderful woman. She often helped me if I needed a sitter for my kids. My kids and I would sit outside and talk with her, she would often share stories and became a big part in our everyday life. I am sorry for her loss. My thoughts are with her family.
