Doug and Karen, I was saddened to learn of your mother's passing, My Father (Bud Mattison) worked with your mother at American States for most of those 30 years. That's where I met her and always enjoyed her outgoing and friendly personality, not to forget her laugh, she was a lovely and beautiful lady and I'm grateful I had the opportunity to know her. Mary Jo (Mattison) Streicher.

Just wanted to let you know that I had the privilege of knowing Mary for many years as she volunteered her time helping us at the Regional Diabetes Center at Home Hospital and later at Franciscan Health after the hospitals merged. She is someone I will always admire. Wish I could have said goodbye. I'm so sorry for your loss. Laurel Widmer

Please accept our condolences after hearing about Mary.. such a good neighbor and very nice soul with her personality and sense of humor. I remember she would always watch the dogs and she would come over to the fence and deliver treats. But Mary’s life was full of love and her family gatherings. Our prayers are with you all. Rest easy Mary, you will be missed. Pete and Becky

I am so sorry to hear of Mother Bower's passing. When the Summers' cousins would spend time in Dayton during the summer, her house was one of the stops on our bike rides. I always enjoyed visiting her-great childhood memories. Sending love and hugs to the family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I am so sorry to hear of Mother Bowers passing. Growing up Allison and I would visit with her, have a few cookies and then zip on through the yard to visit with Allison’s great grandmothers. And why I can still hear Mother Bowers screen door shut behind us just makes me smile. Heaven has gained a new angel. All my thoughts and prayers to you all ❤️
