  1. Craig and I send our heartfelt condolences to the family. Mary will always live in our hearts as the life of any party! We especially loved the times we spent in Huatabampo with her. She will be missed by everyone who’s lives she touched! God Bless you Mary! Love, Craig and Carolyn

  2. Linda, Aunt Mary was such a special woman to me, I will remember her for her zest for life, helping the less fortunate, her passion for learning and her delightful laugh. She was an awesome lady and will be missed by me and many others. The Lord bless you with his comfort and peace.

  3. Dear Linda and Family, I will always remember Mary as a lively, happy and inspirational and gracious lady. She always had a good word to say about everyone. At the dances and community get togethers she never sat or ate, only table hopped to visit and tell her wonderful stories. Fondly, Pat Romero

  4. I was so sorry to see the picture of Mary Fernandez in today’s Daily Breeze. But, you know what, that is the very way I remember her. She was enthusiastic in so many activities. She was a member of the Gardena Valley Democratic Club and she let us members eat brunch at her restaurant. Mary liked to talk about immigrants. I mean she really loved immigrants. She taught many immigrants to speak and read English. She also emphasized the need to understand the government. Civics was always a priority with her. Mary’s death comes at a time when immigrants are under attack, especially the undocumented. It seems to me that each immigrant group to the United States has had to fight for its right to be here, to stay here. Mary understood immigrants and their needs. And, deep down, I think she understood the need of our country to keep immigrants coming. I will miss that down to earth but intensive drive she had. We as a country are better off because of! Mary Fernandez, and I for one am glad I had the opportunity to know her. Terry Kennedy Gardena
