  4. I had the pleasure of knowing Mary for the past 10 yrs. My family and I used to live in the complex she resided in. I was once a member of the board she sevred on.Always on the go and very sweet. I remember seeing her with her bowling gear and wondered how someone so tiny could bowl? I asked her about it and she seriously smiled and asked if I wanted to bowl against her? By the look in her eyes, I knew to quickly decline the offer. Although I hadnt seen her since we moved away almost 3 yrs ago…I do remember her well and will miss her. God Bless and Keep You Mary… Rest In Peace.
