Most of Mary's life was dedicated to raising her eight children. As they got older she went to work to help support the family by cooking at various restaurants and was know for her delicious homemade pies. As time went by she became a grand ma and loved spending time with all the grand babies. She loved snuggling them babies even if they weren't in the snuggling mood. Mom was always there for us in our good times and bad times.
She was the type of person that would give and do without so others could have.

What do you say about someone that held you in their arms when you where small and always carried you in their heart as you were grown? I've got so many stories that I could share. Some sad, some funny and so many memories that we all will be able to take with us. With 8 kids and a husband of 66 years I'm so thankful we each have our own. I will speak about what I know best about momma, and the times we spoke of God, her one desire was to see her children and grandkids saved. I also know she wants to see Poppa right next to us. A circle of our family has been broken but her heart wants us to remain close, we shall let no hate , no jealousy, no resentment tear us apart. I want to meet her on the day God calls me home. I can only imagine the reunion that she had as she was welcomed home on her momma's birthday. We love you momma and thank you for always loving us even when we were not lovable.
Tonight I cry a silent tear...
Tonight I will close my eyes and think of all the memories we have made. I'm not going to cry tonight for you are in the land of song. There is no more pain, no more fear, I'm not thinking of you in the dark and cold for tonight you are in a place that's filled with love known to you as heaven.
We love you momma and thank you for being the best in the world to us.
