Mary was born and raised in Wiggins, CO and graduated from Wiggins High School. She moved to Denver and raised her children alone after the death of their father in December 1977. She was a housewife and nurturer. She loved people, especially children. Her grandchildren were the apples of her eye. Everyone that met her loved her and she instantly became mom and grandma to the masses.
She loved God and was a woman of great faith. Her church home has been Landmark Tabernacle Pentecostal Church since the late 1970's. She loved her pastor and sisters and brothers in the Lord. She danced, sang and shouted at church and at home until she no longer could. Now she'll dance on streets of gold. She will be greatly missed and remain forever in our hearts.

A funeral service for Mary will be held Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at 10:00 AM at Landmark Tabernacle Church, 2727 South Sheridan Blvd, Lakewood, Colorado. Interment at Olinger Highland Cemetery.
