  • I am sending my sincere sympathy to the family. Mary was such a delight and fun person in our sorority. We will miss her, her smile, and just being with her. God’s blessings to all!

  • Jim, Gary and Rick,

    Please accept our prayers and thoughts for your mother.

    It was great growing up on Torbett Street in Richland and playing “hoops” and then going to “Mar’s Diner” for a snack.

    Having just moved to Richland from Naches, it was a such a pleasure to find such great folks as Gary and especially Mary.

    It was always great visiting Mary at her home, she was always such a great hostess to all of her guests.

    She will certainly be missed to those who knew her but she has found her eternal home with the Lord.

  • I visited Mary with my sister, Kate, a few times over the years, and to me, she was a kind, loving, non-judgemental person – accepting whatever life “threw” at her with a grace that few seem to have. She laughed easily, and I’ll always remember that beautiful smile.

    I’m sorry for your loss. She sure did love her family.

  • To Mary’s famly, I enjoyed knowing Mary for many many years. As a child at Jason Lee with Rick, as we often walked home from school the same way and then later as I had the priviledge of doing her hair for many years. She was always fun to visit with and how she loved her boys and thier families. She talked often of thier activities and how good you all were to her. She cretainly felt loved and cared for,and how she adored her grandchildren, they meant the world to her. She and I lost contact after her move, but I often inquired about her from others who knew her from church or the hospital auxillary, she was well thought of. I will remember as a kind hearted woman whos family was her life. My prayers are with you all. Janis Tames

  • Dearest Jim, Gary and Rick, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was the greatest. As a child I thought of Mary as my second Mom. I have the greatest memories of tea parties and finger nail painting. There will never be a May day I do not think of your mother and lilacs, that I would secretly put on the front porch, ring the bell and run, It was so special to see her at church. Rest assured Mary and Charlie are toghether again.

    Love you, Cindy Boyd Ford

  • Mary was such a sweet sister-in-law. I always knew she was special. Her other sisters-in-law and I would remark on how her brothers would roll out the red carpet when she came to visit. Her brothers thought she walked on water. We all loved her so. She charmed our children with her warm smile and “Aunt Mary” ways. She had a “grace” about her that came from the heart. We will miss her.

  • To Jim,Gary, and Rick. I’ll always remember the many times I lunched with Mary at work. She spoke with pride of her sons and Harold. She also spoke of playing Barbies with granddaughter Brianna. She was a lovely woman,and will be sorely missed. With Sympathy Bob and Dolly DePoe
