Mary was fun loving, fearless and always had a smile on her face. She never met a stranger. Her happiest moments were spent with her family, especially backyard BBQs with her kids and grandkids. As much as she loved spending time with her kids and grandkids, her rock was her beloved husband, Sam and their faith.
