I lived at Collegeview Towers for approximately 15 years and knew Mary both on a business and personal level. She was a truly sweet and lovely lady and always made me smile. Such a gracious person. Rest in peace.

May you have comfort in the memories of your loved one. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4) The
Bible gives a real hope of being reunited again with your loved one. It promises that
your loved one will soon come back to life in the resurrection to a peaceful paradise
on the earth. (John 5:28, 29)
