Ruth, Anne, and Paul - so sorry to hear of Mary's passing. She was a great person and I have many fond memories of Mary and baby-sitting all of you as you grew up. Many the night as I was walking from the living room, Mary and I would start talking about something (usually something to do with the hospital and nursing) and after about a half hour or so we were still talking at the door!
Mary planted the seeds for me and eventually after my husband Paul died, I went to Burridge and studied for my LPN.
I have many memories of your family and how Mary was always ready to come across the street to help with my Mom or Dad.
Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Marilyn (Thompson) Moore

Anne and family, sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. Although I had not seen her in many years I have many fond memories of fun times at your house back in the day. My condolences to you and your family.
