Everyone loved her fried chicken, and she was famous for her brownies. In her spare time, she enjoyed watching her favorite tv show, Wheel of Fortune and playing board, card, and domino games with her family. She enjoyed playing Bunco and loved all the ladies in her group. In their younger years, Mary and her husband bowled in a bowling league together. She enjoyed visiting with her special friends Wanda Wesch and Ida Mayes. Mary will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
