Grandma Mary loved being a grandma and that was clear as day. She loved being around family with any opportunity, whether it was spending a holiday with everybody and playing Skip-bo, or just running around town doing some errands. One thing I learned knowing her is how social she was naturally. If you took any time, you could know exactly how she was feeling or what had been going on with her lately and it made me realize the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. This honesty was the most beautiful quality about her and one I will never forget.

I didnt know Mary very well, but I always enjoyed talking with her at the holidays. She loved listening to music and telling stories of her past. I'm so sorry for your loss and she will be very missed. Thinking of you all. Schalk and Jessica Strydom

I will always remember going to Grandma Mary’s Apartment. She was always waiting for us by the screen door. When I’d step in, I’d see a sign hanging in her living that said “To Grandmother’s House We Go” That sign has always put a smile to my face. She was very proud to be a grandmother. Her smile was always the greatest when she’d say that first “Hi” every time. Her jokes always made me laugh. I will always think of her when I play a game of Skip-Bo or hear the phrase “To Grandmother’s House We Go”

Mary was my second mom. She always treated my sister and I as we were her own children. She had a tough exterior though under that "leather" was one of the kindest souls I've come to know. She will always be remembered as the Skipbo champion. Rest well Mary and we will be coming to that table in the future. Love, Anthony "Tony" Eshleman

Mary treated me like a daughter since the first day that I met her. I am so thankful that I got to be a part of her family, for better or for worse. She kicked my butt in Skipbo every time we played, and she LOVED when my cats went to sit in her lap! I’m going to miss her corny jokes on the holidays, and her very prominent smile and wave every time we picked her up. I’m especially going to miss the family dinners with her. She genuinely enjoyed the time with her sons, and grandkids, and I’m thankful that I got to be a part of that. ??
