In her free-time, Mary loved playing cards. Euchre and Phase 10 were two of her favorites. Mary was fortunate enough to never have to work away from home, she was always taking care of the house and family. She was always there for you and willing to help whenever someone was in need. She volunteered at the church and enjoyed visiting with friends. She was also very talented in crocheting. With Mary, you always knew where you stood.
Mary was a farm girl at heart, having spent her childhood growing up on the family farm. Formal dress is not required, please feel free to wear your jeans and boots.
