Most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family; nothing was more important to her.    Mary had a vivacious personality and always made people laugh.  She was a strong woman; she wasn’t afraid of anything or anyone.  Mary was a warm, gentle and kind daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and friend who will be deeply missed.
