    I had the pleasure of working with Mary at the Delaware Chamber of Commerce. She was a consummate professional, dedicated to helping make a difference and committed to doing her best. Mary was a true team player...and a caring person. May the Lord welcome her into His kingdom and for her family, help replace the sadness of her loss on earth with the warm memories of how Mary touched our lives. Keep the faith.

    My heartfelt condolences and thoughts go out to Michele and her siblings. I knew Mary from back in the 1980’s when she lived just around the corner. She was such a lovely lady with a wonderful smile-she will be sorely missed.
