Mary was one of my favorite residents at the gardens assisted living! I worked in the kitchen and always got to hear and watch Mary play the piano in the dining room. She always made me laugh and was very proud to be a preachers daughter. She will always be remembered as our Notebook lady!

Mary and I became good friends during the time she lived at the Garden's Assisted Living. I will always remember her as soft spoken and kind. She was always proud to say she was "A preacher's kid". My true condolences to her family and may God bless you all.

I got to know Mary when she lived at Union Gardens. I am the Service Coordinator there. Everyone loved Mary. She was a friend to all. Her smile and sparkle in her eye brought happiness to all. We enjoyed her playing the piano. When it was your Birthday she made sure to play ''Happy Birthday" for you. Mary enjoyed years of Wii bowling on many teams. Mary always joined in the fun at the building.
Mary spoke of her family often. She was so proud of them. We certainly missed her after she left UG. My thoughts and prayer are with you.
Sincerely, Jan Wilson
