Mary was my sister in law. She will always be remembered for her laugh and being married to a Marine she was just as tough.. I always called her the Spunky nurse in our family.. Love to all that knew her.

A wonderful person to have as an older cousin. I am happy to share the same middle name as she. It always made me feel a special connection to her.
