My heartfelt sympathy to Mary's family, especially to Donna and Frannie & Barbara. I worked with Donna's grandmother Hazel Kerker in the late 50s and early 60s when Hazel was the Post Office Clerk at Purdue's Men's Residence H-l (now Owen Hall). Barbara and her family are friends with my family from our 4-H days. I met Mary when we were members of ABWA (American Business Women's Assoc.) After our chapter disbanded, a few of us continued to meet for lunch each month. We were fortunate to have Mary be a part of that group. She was a delightful lady and will really be missed. It was great that when Frannie & Barbara were visiting Bob & Mary, Mary would bring Barbara to our "old" ABWA group lunches. Also we shared our love for Purdue football & basketball. It's neat that Mary is wearing a black & gold sweater in her obituary photo.

I want to share my joy in knowing Mary with her family and friends. I also share my sorrow because it felt like she would be here forever. I am so lucky to have so many special memories of her. Simple things, going to the "Doghouse" in my convertible for ice cream, she loved that. Breakfast, lunch visits, seems like we spent a lot of time eating... But we would start with breakfast, talk and laugh until we realized it was lunchtime and we'd laugh at that. She liked coming to my farm when she was stronger to see all my "critters". At first, I think she thought I was nuts to love all of them so, then as she got to know me and them, then she knew why. She was very strong, very passionate, and sometimes very stubborn about the things she felt and believed. I met Mary shortly after I lost my mom, she was my good friend, my confidant, an older sister, a second mother. There was nothing we couldn't talk about, I never gave our age difference a thought. I know that it was my fortune to move in next door to this amazing lady, She loved her life on the farm, her family and god. Right now, it feels like a piece of my heart is missing. Every conversation we had ended with " I love you" I feel very blessed by that and knowing we will say it again someday. My deepest condolences to all that loved her.
