    One of Mary’s favorite hobbies was fishing. Nothing pleased Mary more than feeling the tug of a fish on the other end of her line. Mary also loved spending time in her kitchen. Her family enjoyed Thanksgiving and Christmas time in particular since Mary was in charge of the cooking. If you have ever had Mary’s fried chicken, then you’d understand the excitement had by the family.

    At Mary’s request, no formal services will be held.
