Sue and I met Mary at Rennes in the late fall of 2018 when Sue was rehabbing from a broken shoulder for 6 weeks. Mary had the greatest non-stop smile and such warmth in her heart!! When I would come to visit Sue she was always happy to see me and spend a few minutes chatting about things. and likewise from Sue and I we so much appreciated spending some time and talking with her. I met a few of her family I think a couple of her daughters I'm sorry I don't remember their names. I also met some of the grandkids who enjoyed sitting outside her doorway in the hall and I would kid around with them and tease
them a little bit. Mary told me that the grandkids got a kick out of seeing me! I was kind of shocked when I read tonight's Friday the 14th paper and I saw Marys smiling face looking up at me! Although we only knew her briefly that was all it took she was indeed a special special lady and will truly be missed! God bless Mary rest in peace. Love Ken& Sue

My heart broke today when I saw this. I was her Post Crescent carrier for a long time. She was the sweetest person I know. She always had time to talk and she always let me know how she appreciated the person attention I took to make sure she got her paper. My heart goes out to her family. She will truly be missed.
