Mary was an exceptionally caring person and was the heartbeat of her family. Hosting holidays and parties and bringing together friends and family with delicious homemade meals was one of Mary’s favorite things and just knowing her made your life better. Being a successful business owner and taking family vacations were hallmarks of her time on earth. However, what brought her the most joy was her grandson, Jake.
