I am sorry for the loss of this wonderful lady I was priviledged to call my Aunt Mary. I was lucky to have her in my life as a young girl along with my cousins growing up in Kansas. She always greeted me with a big kiss whenever she saw me and she was the aunt that always loved to pinch my cheeks as a child. The years got away from us all and distance, I only have the fondest of memories of this strong wonderful woman. My sincerest condolences Doug, Holly, Duane and Heather. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Heather and family ~ I am so sorry for your loss. How I will miss Mary living nearby and ‘swinging by’ to say hi. It seems as though time has flown by since she brought her family (and my best friend) to Lancaster County 30 years ago. Her spunky personality and resilience has been an inspiration to me. She was a strong woman and will be greatly missed. My sincerest condolences and love.
