Aunt Mary was always there for me good times and bad. No matter how long in between she always welcomed me with open arms. I can't even imagine how many lives she touched in her 93 yr. But she touched me profoundly with her kindness, caring and selfless ways. She loved her God , I loved her dearly and I will miss her terribly , but I know she is in heaven no more worry and no more pain.

My fondest memory of Aunt Mary was a trip I took with her and Uncle Gilbert to see my Uncle James and Aunt Halle in Kentucky. I was around 10 years old. It was the first time I ever left the state of Indiana. In my adult years, she was the Aunt that was always there. Weddings, funerals, etc. Selfless, she was greatly loved by all and will be missed.
