Mary always had a passion for music and was a huge Elvis lover. She enjoyed dancing, movies, bicycling when she was younger, and tending to her flowers and garden. Mary loved the color pink and all animals, especially her little dog baby, Diamond. She was a big flirt and never met a stranger. Mary loved sitting on her porch and people-watching. She also enjoyed drinking wild cherry Pepsi and sharing her love of coffee and cookies with her children and grandchildren.
 
She will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
