    I am so sorry for your loss. Mary was a nursing classmate of mine. I so remember her sense of humor. Her smile and laughter just filled my heart. She was a compassionate nurse who was so kind to her patients. She will be deeply missed. .

    My memories of my cousin Mary is that she ALWAYS had a smile on her face. Her laugh and sense of humor were genuine, hearty and contagious. She was an absolute joy to be around.. We always shared great memories of the crazy things both our dads said and did when we were younger. I am truly saddened by her passing and I wish Scott, all the kids and grandkids, Jerry and Kathleen my deepest condolences and prayers.

    Mary and I worked together when I was a brand new nurse. Mary was such a wonderful role model, a mentor, and a kind and caring woman. She will be very missed. Prayers for all her family and friends.

    Mary was my dear friend from Holy Cross through Mercy. We logged many hours at each other’s homes. We had fun & got into some mischief. As matter of fact, we were together the night she met her Scott. Always laughing and joking Mary was cheerfulness personified. As adults, we met regularly for lunch and hours would fly by. We traded stories of our families, work and life. She was a laugher and a listener. Her hopefulness and kindness brought me comfort. Amy told me that Mary passed away on her mother’s birthday. I think her dear mom saw her daughter’s journey and thought, “It’s time for you to come and be with me now.” Mary, my dear friend, you fought the good fight. You were a warrior and a saint. May your family who has passed before you and the angels of Mercy be there to hold you tight as you enter into eternal happiness. Mike & I send deepest sympathy to Scott, Melissa, Amy, Scott and their children. .

    We met Mary when our girls roomed together at Ball State. We will always remember Mary for her smile, her laugh and always so very sweet and kind. Our prayers, blessings and love to the family.

  • Jerry Amick Posted January 24, 2021 10:25 am

    i was with Scott when he met Mary at Sandy’s Escape back in 1968.She has been one of my favorite people on earth ever since. The good times we had together are to numerous to mention but ones i will always cherish. i will always remember her smile and sense of humor. But most of all I will remember her for her devotion & love for her family. Our loss is heaven’s gain. My deepest sympathy & love goes out to Scott, Melissa, Amy, Scotty and the rest of Mary’s family!

    I am so saddened by the news of Mary’s passing! She was such an inspiration to all that she touched. I looked forward to Wednesdays and Fridays when she would come to my office and tell me about her night. It always then went to the topic of her family that she loved so much. She made me laugh at all the stories she would tell me about her everyday life at home with Scott, her kids and her grandkids. There was nothing more more important to her than her family. I visited her often in the hospital or met for lunch when she could and she never once said, “Why Me”. She gave it her all and will miss her dearly. I pray her family and friends will heal with time. I will miss Mary something fiercely but know that heaven has gotten one of the GREAT ONES! Love you Mary…

    I knew Mary Frances through third grade at Holy Cross. I have many early memories of our childhood. Within the last year I reached out to her and sent photos of the two of us at her house when we were both five or six. Although we did not stay in touch after 1960, I was glad to hear she went into nursing as did I. Rest in peace, my friend, Mary Frances with love from Mary Kay.

  • Cheryl Richards Posted January 25, 2021 7:24 am

    Mary and I shared an uncle, Fred Mauro. When I worked at Methodist we’d bump into each other and she would catch me up on family. I always looked forward to seeing her, she always was smiling and had a great infectious laugh. My condolences to her entire family. She was a beautiful person.

  • Bonita Pharis Posted January 26, 2021 11:05 am

    Deepest condolences to all the family. I was in her class at Methodist
