Ace and Dee It is profoundly sad to hear that your mother has passed on. She was such a loving and remarkable figure to me and many more. She made the effort to be at my mothers'funeral and I loved seeing her again, if only for a few minutes. I will always have a special place in my heart for her and the rest of your family. She gave me great comfort and advice during my growing years. God bless you and your families.

Dr. Slevin and Barbie, Very sorry to hear of the death of "Mama Slevin". From the sweet words written, I know she must have been a great lady with as much strength as she had dignity. Thoughts to your and yours, Victoria

I will always look back fondly to my young days on the farm and what great company was always to be had there. Thank you, Mary.

John and Dee - I was sorry to read of your mother in the electronic paper...judging from all the highly impressived comments of others, she must have been a great person! But then I always remember both of you as great people-persons, even back at PHS all those years ago. I lost my own dear mother nearly 2 years ago and so know something of what you're going through. Stay strong in yourselves and your families, God Bless, and Take Care.

Farewell to an American hero. A few years ago, Mary walked into the Veteran's Luncheon at the school and had everyone's attention. She wore her WWII uniform and did she ever look sharp. What a grand lady!!

When I lived in Pennsboro I saw Mary every week and enjoyed chatting with her at Carla's. She was a very special lady, witty and warm. She will surely be missed. May God be with you all at this very sorrowful time.

So sorry for the loss of Mary.
I don't know how many hundreds of times in my childhood that "Nurse Mary" came to the rescue for some medical crisis in my family. My father (Leo, also a Corning employee) trusted Mary's advice over any other in the Parkersburg area.
She will be missed by many.
