  2. Mary was my friend for 52 years, she, Debbie (Wright) Thomas, Barbara (Farr) Bayer and I were fast friends in Spearman High School. Mary was a year ahead of us in school but never looked down on us as mere Juniors when she was a senior. She was a joy! Beauty inside and out! We will all see her again in time, I know.

  3. I loved Mary so much. We met at AC while going to school. She always kidded around saying she got her MRS instead of a different degree. I reconnected with her several times in the last 10 years when she was delivering flowers to patients and others at BSA, where I worked as an RN for many years. I retired 2 years ago so I haven’t seen her around. She will always hold a special place in my heart. ❤️

  4. My sweet friend, what will I do without you? I know you are singing with the angels now., and one day we will see you again and that is what gives me comfort. Prayers for your children and family. Love you always. ❤️

  5. Sweet Mary, so much fun, full of energy and overflowing with love. I was so lucky to have been a friend.. I love you Mary.

  6. When my daughter Lacey became friends with Rita, I gained a friend too in Mary. She was unfailingly kind and truely sweet through the years as we watched our little girls become young women. Our hearts are with Rita and all her family at this sad loss.
