I will always treasure my memories and times with Mary, especially as my bridesmaid. Mary had a heart of GOLD, she touched everybody she knew. She was one that always made sure classmates got together for class reunions or just got together for Old Sod Days at Belview at Legion for a burger. That day will never be the same without her. Her smile and laugh will never be forgotten. Cherish your memories of Mary , as I will forever. God be with you and your family.
