    Roger and Patrick, we are so sorry for your loss. Mary was a good neighbor and friend. Her needlework talents were amazing, as well as her intelligence and wit. Mary’s many years of service to students and staff as a member of the D.C. Everest School Board are a testament to her belief in the value of community service. Her contributions as a member will positively impact our community for years to come.

    We appreciated your visit to the Wednesday bridge group, Roger. You have our deepest sympathy in the loss of your beloved wife.
    We saw how gently you treated her so she could come to us each week. We enjoyed her company and expertise playing bridge, and will miss her presence and companionship.

    We really enjoyed playing bridge with Mary at the Rothschild Village Hall and getting to know her. She was an excellent player and a lot of fun to play with even though she usually won. Her handy work that she brought to show us was beautiful. She will be missed by her many friends as well as her family.

    Our condolences to her family.

    Mary was enjoyed by many in her years in the EGA group – and she will be missed by all. Such a talented lady – always willing to share her expertise and push the others to try things that they were afraid to try.
    My condolences to her husband and son – she cherished them both.

    Mary was a gifted stitcher who leaves many beautiful and treasured pieces of needlework as her legacy. I will cherish the needlepoint Christmas ornament I was lucky enough to receive. I will always remember her needlework as well as her many Christmas trees. Cherish your memories of her and please accept my sympathy.
