    To Mary’s family,
    I first met Mary around 1973, the reason I liked her from the start is because she laughed at all my silly stories and jokes, actually, Mary ALWAYS laughed at everyone’s jokes. We had great times and good times for a long time. I will always remember Mary and her family being featured on the NBC Nightly news when she and her family lived in Saudi Arabia during one of the conflicts there. It was a treat to see friends on TV I had not seen in a long time. To Mary’s kids , grandkids, and family, rest assured Mary will always be in everyone’s heart and memory bank for all the people she crossed paths with-whether St. Charles or around the world.
    Peace,

    Mary,
    I will remember our
    Walks home from Blanchette Park after 8:30 games,you being scared of cutting through yards, me running down Cherry Lane,
    Rides in that Corvair,
    You finding me a date for Senior homecoming
    Living on Rosemary Lane
    You climbing down the sewer to get Deb Beste keys
    Your generosity and kindness…
    Love and miss you dear friend

    Words just cannot express the sorrow and sadness I feel with you passing. We have so many memories together with our life in Aramco, all the work we did with our children and our boys attending McCallie together. Mary, you will always be remembered as a strong, confident woman who wanted nothing but a great opportunities for Matt and Mollie. You always were a champion for the underdog, and carried your beliefs where all knew EXACTLY where you stood. I am SO happy to have had a chance to see you when you visited the O’Brien’s. You will be forever in my memories and I cherish the times we shared. Be at peace my friend, you fought long and hard and showed us what courage really is. Love you much, Sue B

    Mary, words cannot express my sorrow and sadness that you have passed. I have many cherished memories of our time together during our Aramco days. You were in inspiration to me, working so hard and tirelessly on the School Board, being involved in the activities Matt and Mollie participated in. We shared the experience of sending our boys to a great school for their high schools years….and our many lunches with Linda at the Hobby Farm. Talks of movies, books, husband and family issues that good ‘girl’ friends lament and blab over. You always had that love of a good joke, you were a thoughtful and gracious friend. You will forever be in my heart and prayers…..Be at peace my friend, you showed us all your great strength and courage….Love you much….Sue B
