  1. Sending our deepest sympathies to Bill, Joyce, Susan and family. Auntie Mary will be remembered fondly. Although her last few years were difficult, she always had an infectious smile! Thinking of you all at this time. Hugs to everyone!

    Love,
    Jim and Diane

    • Thank you, yes she had this infectious smile to everyone.

    • Thanks Diane, yes she always was smiling.

  2. Oh my gosh, memories, memories! I worked with Mary in the accounting dept in the 60’s for a number of years at Greyhound. She did the accounting for all the express deliveries and I did all the ticket sales accounting. She was this petite woman with a very graceful walk, very business dressed, a ready smile and always ready to socialize. She talked non stop about her 2 daughters, Joyce and Susan, and adored her Bill. We took our coffee breaks everyday at Mickey’s in the depot and even though there was a 16 yr age gap, we just talked about everything and nothing. I left in ’69 or 70 and we lost track of each other over the years but I never forgot her. The picture is still the same Mary even though so much time has passed. Bill, Joyce and Susan, please accept my most heartfelt condolences on the loss of a wonderful lady and a great work partner.

  3. The Kitzan Family, Tony, Julie & family
    So sorry for your loss. When I stopped in to see Mary quite some time ago, I was sure she didn’t know who I was, I kept telling her ‘I’m Tony’s sister’, but she was smilling
    her beautiful smile, in their room where they all watch TV. May our Lord Jesus comfort you all during this huge loss. God Bless !!!
