Mary was a loving and caring woman. I remember when I first moved into our Broad Creek Condo, it was Mary who came to me with her friendly manner and introduced me to our many neighbors. She certainly was an inspiration to all of us and I will miss seeing her smiling face. Peace be with you dear Mary.

My deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear, Mary.
I was a resident of Heritage Harbour for over 25 years and for many years enjoyed playing golf with Mary on our little par 3 golf course. She was delightful each time I saw her and enjoyed her company so much.
My husband, Bill, and I often saw Mary and Bill at the Double T Diner and it was always a pleasure to chat with them.
She was such an asset to the community, and I loved her dearly.

Mary taught many of us to play Mahjong. We played for years with her and enjoyed every game as she won many of them. She was a wonderful neighbor and friend to many of us and I dearly loved her. Even if she was tired, she came to most of our parties. She was always pleasant and oh she loved sports. We could play Mahjong and also listen to a game on TV with Mary. I will miss my dear friend very much but I will never forget the pleasure and love I had for such a wonderful person. Now she is home with her husband and parents but we in Heritage Harbour will never forget Mary as she brought happiness to all of us. Your Mahjong group did not forget you as we toasted Mary at our most recent game in her memory. Thanks Mary!
