  4. Mary, Mary, Mary – one of a kind Mary. In high school, I knew you would do well in life no matter what. Was so glad to see you at the reunion! We were in biology together and you made me laugh all the time. And, then, we decided to try out for Miss Putt Putt! We spent the day getting makeup at the Merle Norman Studio and our hair done, and there we were on stage in our bathing suits and high heels.

  9. I was saddened to learn of Mary's passing. When living in Sulphur, my husband, Richard, and I rented the next door apartment from her parents, Bernie and Prudence. We became friends of the family, not just renters. I'll always remember Mary's laughter and kindness to so many. Through her bus-driving days, she came in contact with our son, Jason, and she kindly shared a few stories of our days living on Logan Street. Please know that she will be remembered in my heart and prayers, and my deepest sympathy to her family and all who loved her.
