Memories & Candles
Even though you were not my related grandma, I never felt any different than if I were one of your own grandchildren. When I first met you, Jason and I were 15, visiting you and Grandpa Gene in New Mexico. I was in a softball tournament that weekend and you both came to watch me play. From that moment on you both continued to support and care for me like I was part of your family. I must

ONLY TIME WILL HELP FILL THE HOLE THAT HAS BEEN LEFT WITH YOUR PASSING. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED FOR WHAT YOU WERE, A WIFE, A FRIEND, A MOTHER,A SISTER; AND MOST IMPORTANTLY (TO ME) THE GREATEST GRANDMOTHER ANYONE COULD EVER BE. I WILL NEVER FORGET THE IMPACT YOU HAVE HAD ON MY LIFE AND WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS HOW MUCH YOU WILL BE MISSED BY THOSE YOU HAVE LEFT BEHIND. THANK YOU FOR ALWAYS BEING THERE FOR THE ONES WHO NEEDED YOU THE MOST. I LOVE YOU. THEN, NOW AND ALWAYS!

So sorry to hear of Mary's passing. No doubt she is an angel watching over you all. Roger & I enjoyed a wonderful day with Gene & Mary when they were visiting Sandy. So glad we had that time. Bless you all! She is a treasure to remember.

We've never known anyone that enjoyed life more than Mary. She was always smiling and laughing. She was such a loving wife to Gene and made him so happy for 31 years. We'll always have wonderful memories of Mary, especially our adventures in Italy, In-law/Out-law reunions, skiing at Brighton and camping. We will miss you, Mary.

It has been said that God only takes the very best - while it breaks our hearts
it seems to be true.
Mary will be missed but never forgotten and her memory will live forever with those who loved her.

What a wonderful everything you were to me, Mother,friend, advisor, too many to count. Starting with the days at the Little Dipper. "Fun Days" they were.The tubes of Ban de Soiel, the best side stroke we ever saw. Of course it was a race, so we wanted you to go so much faster......but to no avail. Afternoons with the ladies playing cards. All of the sporting events and yes your special cheer! I was so happy to be living in

WE FIRST MET MARY IN COLORADO SPRINGS, CO. WHEN OUR CHILDREN WERE IN GRADE SCHOOL. LYNN WAS OUR BABYSITTER AND ONE OR TWO OF GENE'S BOYS WERE IN MY CUB SCOUT DEN. WE SHARED MANY FUN MEMORIES AT THE SKYWAY "LITTLE DIPPER" POOL. AND AT HAPPY HOUR AT THE THEN ENT OFFICERS CLUB WITH OUR MUTUAL FRIENDS, JIM AND GAIL BAER. MARY WAS ALWAYS GAME FOR A GOOD TIME AND FUN. WE ENJOYED BEING WITH HER. SHE WILL BE MISSED. OUR PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS ARE WITH THE FAMILY AT THIS TIME.

It's a sad time for Gene, family and friends. Mary was a special person in all of our lives. The time's we were able to spend with her and Gene, she always treated my family and myself with great kindness. We will grieve Mary's passing, but we will also celebrate the memories and the time we were able to be with her.
I will miss you mary! Brad
