Memories & Candles
My grandmother was an amazing person. I miss her and my grandfather so very much. My best memories were playing cards till 3 in the morning, and then being back down at their house for breakfast. Grandma always had the best laugh, advice, and smile . Grandma and Grandpa will always be in my heart.

Aunt Mary will forevermore be in my heart. The fond memories of visiting the farm and the kindness Aunt Mary always bestowed upon us. I will never forget when I was pregnant and on bed rest, Aunt Mary and Uncle Al came to visit me and Aunt Mary made a quilt for my son. I have that quilt today. Its been 22 years since the day she gave it to me.
Sending my love and prayers to my cousins whose mother and father will alwayas have a special place in my heart.

To John and family,
Please accept my condolences for your loss.
I know your mother will be very missed and remembered for many good deeds and times.
I still remember the one Christmas that Mary and Al received that little yellow airplane containing tickets for Hawaii. When they returned with all the fresh fruit, we made juice and sat around listening to all the talk of the fun they had on their trip. Those are certainly good times to

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated Mary. My Mother and her were at the nursing home at the same time. They became good friends and I know it helped my mother. My mother was Sharon Metz, she past in 2011. Also my late husband (John) and I have been friends with John for a long time. My sympathies to all. God Bless, Lisa Van Horn

Mom (Aunt Patti), Linda & I send our deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear mother. While Linda and I grew up on the west coast, away from family, we greatly enjoyed the trips to Ohio to spend time with our Aunts, Uncles & Cousins. I have fond memories of time spent with Aunt Mary- her great cooking, smile and laugh, and very practical advice!
Aunt Mary was a favorite our our dad, her brother Leo.

To the Family, Please accept my condolances for your loss. I personally did not know Mary, but being the District II Director of Soroptimist International of Midwestern Region, I felt a sisterhood when I read of her passing. I would hope that at some point our lives had crossed and I have a strong feeling she was a sincere loving person.
