I had the privilege of caring for and getting to know this beautiful lady in 2013. Then in 2017 Mary and my mother Betty Raines become very good friends, they shared books, meals and played dominos everyday. Mary is loved and will be greatly missed by Mom and I.  No more tears or pain for her now. I pray Gods peace and comfort for her loved ones that are left behind. 
Until we meet again sweet Mary.

So sorry for your loss. She was always nice to us. I (Donna) loved going to the Downtown Bakery when she was running it. She volunteered to make our wedding cake and it was very pretty.  May you find peace and comfort during this time.
