Mary's faith was most important in her life.

She maintained an extensive prayer list and prayed daily for those on it. She was musically gifted, playing the piano, violin and flute and sang beautifully. A woman of many interests, she loved to read, travel, follow the Cardinals, garden, crochet and she loved dessert. Together with Jack, Mary built the Barry Community Care Center in 1975. She worked there in the office until her retirement.
Mary will be remembered as a gracious lady who quietly and devotedly lived her faith. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
