Mary graduated from S.C.H.S. class of 1953. She was a wonderful wife, mother and homemaker. She loved to cook and celebrate holidays with the family. She enjoyed growing flowers and plants, shopping in the malls, movies and dining out. Taking care of family was her career. A highlight in her life was witnessing the graduation of all the daughters from their chosen Universities and having their own careers. Mary was a member of Valley Grove Baptist Church. The family wishes to thank the nurses and CNA’s at Asbury for their loving and tender care of Mary. May God richly bless them.
