    To: Russ, Sonya, Jim, Linda, Pete, Sally, John, Mark: I am extremely saddeded to learn of Mary’s death. I have not seen her in a few years and did not keep in touch with her but I continued to hear through other family members of the deep commitment and love she had for her beloved family and her love for animals. I so remember the days long ago of growing up in Meadowlands and all those days at the playground in back of the church & visiting at Uncle Ed & Aunt Maxine’s house. I also remember how she and I used to go to dances at the Arena in Washington on weekends. We were also in the same bookkeeping class in high school and shared many laughs. My thoughts and prayers are will all of you. God Bless all of you during this very difficult time. Love, your cousin, Charlene

    Dear Family, I got to know Mary while a resident at Parkview Care Ctr. She shared a room with another Mary, Whom she kept in great contact with and the other Mary truly enjoyed Mary’s visits. Even when Mary was in so much pain she was always thinking of others that’s just the type of person she was. We were all surprised to hear of Mary’s passing, and wanted to give you our condolences. You all are in our parayers. We will miss Mary! Mary received the plant and is truly enjoying it. Just like she so much enjoyed Mary!.

    Russ, I was so sorry to hear about Mary’s passing. Chuck at Parkview told me the other day when I was out there to see my mother. I only had the pleasure of knowing Mary for a short time, but she left an indelible impression on me and I’m sure most people she came into contact with. She made the world a better place. My thoughts are with you. Sincerely, Barbara Christianson
