Memories Timeline


  1. Rest in Peace Mary. You were one classy lady and will be missed. Please give Ada and Kitty a kiss for me…
    Love you…..Joann & Gary

  2. Rest in peace, Ms. Mary, your earthy journey is over. You are now with Jesus and
    His Blessed Mother. However, we (especially your sister members of OLG Rosary
    Society) will miss you.

  3. Millie and family, I am so very sorry on the passing of your dear sister Mary. She was certainly one of our favorite patients and I will miss her very much. You will all be in my prayers.

  4. My dear Aunt Mary May you rest in peace you so truly deserve. You were a wonderful aunt and friend and the memories I have of you will live on forever.

  5. How can she really be gone? It all went so fast.
    But why does it matter so much to me, you may ask.

    It’s been 20 years since I lost my own mother
    and never have I tried to fill her place with another.

    ‘Til I met this woman, just the mother of a friend
    an extraordinary woman whose love had no end.

    Despite the fact that she had her own four children
    she remembered facts in my life as if her own.

    It was always a treat when she came with Liz,
    to see her smiling face, as she sat in her own special place.

    She loved to listen to the choir in which Liz sang
    as did many of the rest of us who are here today.

    I would always stop to give her a kiss and see how she was doing
    and, no matter how she felt, her face was always glowing..

    As the years went by, more and more people came to know her
    this lovely woman who would come church with her daughter.

    One soon learned that her knowledge ran far and wide
    on how to bring up a family in which one could take pride

    We could all see the pride written all over Mary’s face
    as she spoke of her various children, and great-grands.

    So, thank you, Liz for letting me borrow your mother
    since my own. I no longer have.

    I have no doubt that I will miss her greatly
    as will many others in her adopted parish of OLPH.

    Holiday singing in the choir will never be the same again
    as many of us will look down at your empty space.

    Goodbye, dear Mary, “Mom”; may you rest in peace.

  6. Mary Ann and Tom,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you both and your family.

    We both come from a place were we understand what you are going through.

    May you find peace.


    Sharon and David

  7. Dear Mary, It was always a pleasure to see you. Your spirit & love of life will always be remembered by us. Rest in Peace. Love, Ann & Michael
