    Mary helped me understand my crochet patterns. I enjoyed visiting with her and truly appreciated her friendship. I’ll remember her with great fondness.

    To Aunt Margaret’s family,

    To us, Aunt Margaret was truly a remarkable loyal and kind “TRUE LADY”.

    I’m sure she had many hurts in her lifetime, but to our amazement, she was NOT a bitter person.

    Personally, I’m taking a lesson to be more like her.

    We’re glad that she was family!

    I’m sorry this condolence is so late as I have been out of town. I was the manager at Prairie Commons for 12 years. I want the family to know that I loved Mary. She was very special and seemed to have an understanding of my job. One day in particular I remember was very hard and she sent me flowers. I was so impressed she noticed. Her quiet grace will be missed. Bev Bolton
