Mary was such a unique lady, and I emphasize "lady". Her very quiet voice along with her expertise of all accomplishments has left a great legacy for her family and all of us who were so blessed to call her our special friend. May God open his door for all your counting of calories and embrace you in the palm of his hand. Thanks for all the loving memories of you and Bob.

Mary was definitely one of a kind. She made all the employees at Christian County Medical Clinic feel like family. A feeling that remains. She will always be fondly remembered.

Jan and Sandy and families - Know that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Aunt Mary was a "class act". So grateful we were able to see her on the return of one of our Florida trips. She is now with your Dad, and her Iowa family. May she rest in peace. Leanne (Clausen) Snyder
