    Matt, Marcie, Mark and Miki and families- I’m so terribly saddened to hear about the loss of your mother. She was one of the sweetest women I’ve ever known. I have such fond memories of Guz and the Mendenhall family from childhood to adulthood, and I’m so thankful for those memories. I know she will be deeply missed by so many. May all those wonderful memories help carry you through this time of grieving. Our deepest condolences, Natalie, Scott & Macey Bradshaw

    Marcie, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. Mary was amazing and she always made me feel so welcome! She will truly be missed. You will be in my thoughts and in my prayers.

    Mendenhall children… thoughts and prayers go out to you and your entire family….I was so lucky to be able to call your Mom a friend. We met
    in kindergarten and remained friends until our dear Lord decided to take her home so very soon. I will eternally miss her. Love one of the Hags

    I was deeply saddened to hear about Mary. She was lovely. I first met Mary at St. Adalbert’s and she introduced herself to me saying she too had lost her husband. Apparently someone had told her my husband had passed; that was five years ago now. I looked forward to seeing her beautiful face every Saturday evening at Mass. I will miss her terribly. God bless your family.

    I was out of town when word came about Mary. We were classmates at Mercy. She was truly a woman who was one of the kindest souls I have ever met, never drawing attention to herself, always reaching out to others. Children of Mary, please know that your mother was one of a kind, truly Christian with a sprit of mercy, love, and friendship that set her apart. She is in my prayers.
