    Aunt Mary was a stellar example of faith in action, always there encouraging all of us. When I think of what it is to be a godly woman Aunt Mary is the first person who comes to mind., a strong and courageous woman with a gentle and loving nature.

    As long as we’ve known David and Susan Smith, Mary’s son and daughter-in-law, we’ve known Mary. She was a delightful dinner companion, & woman of faith. We loved her, her sense of humor and the Smith family ❤️
