Mary was one of the kindest and caring person's. Without her rounding up not only my coat during winter, but countless other children. She was like a mother to all us kids that went to Sherwood Elementary School. I will surely miss her and that contagious smile,and laugh.
Mary may you rest in peace.

From the 7th grade till the day she passed, Mary & I were really good friends & I will really miss all those laughs & long talks we've had - such good memories. I can find some solace in knowing she's with her Lord. Rest in peace along with Frank.

She was always there at her desk with a smile when you walked in the front door of Sherwood Heights Elementary School. Even when you knew you had a test that day she made the day a little brighter. That’s what Mary did, made everyone’s day a little brighter. Now that I’m older I know she did much more than that, but all she was to all of us kids was someone that we trusted and knew we could rely on.

Thank you Mary and thanks to your family for sharing you with all the alumni of Sherwood Heights Elementary School. Heaven has gained a wonderful angel.
