Mary was a joyful, loving, and devoted daughter, wife, mother, grandmother. She adored traveling with her husband, Jim, and photographing their many adventures, together. She loved spending time with her family, laughing and sharing memories. Mary enjoyed nature and its wildlife. She loved “her” deer, turkey, flowers, and especially, hummingbirds, and smiled, radiantly, when she saw them. Her gentleness and loving nature will be deeply missed.

“Some bright morning when this life is over I’ll fly away To that home on God’s celestial shore I’ll fly away I’ll fly away, oh glory I’ll fly away, in the morning When I die, Hallelujah, by and by I’ll fly away”
