    I will always remember you mom. She and I worked across the hall from each other for years and years. She blessed our work place in innumerable ways. She was a deeply blessed woman created to bless others. We are travelling back to WV from Minneapolis at the time other funeral so we will not be able to attend. But we pray this prayer fro you and your family. Gracious God, receive into you everlasting presence Mary, your servant and a precious expression of your glory and grace. Care for her family that their journey through grief may be gentle and filled with peace. Keep us all in your care as we await our own reunion with Christ who is our Rest.

    Jan I’m sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I always thought she was so beautiful just like a movie star. I remember seeing her over the year at different events with the church. Blessings to you and yours.

    Mary was a wonderful servant of God. Whether I called the conference office or I walked in, talking with Mary helped me to feel that I was part of the conference family. After my mother, Shirley Flynn, became a widow, Mary’s support and friendship meant a great deal to her. I have very fond memories of Mary.
