Mary, nicknamed “baby gal” by her daddy at a young age, was truly one of a kind. She was a loving wife, mama, granny, sister, aunt and friend. Her life’s purpose and her greatest pride and joy was her family. Everyone who knew her, loved her. She was a joy to be around and could put a smile on anyone’s face, whether it was by sharing a sweet compliment to make someone feel good, or acting silly and dancing to make people laugh. Mary was truly one of a kind and she will be deeply missed.
