    I was saddened today to hear of Mary's passing as she was an amazing woman. I really enjoyed our conversations as well as your insight on many different topics! I will never forget your favorite quote/phrase! God bless you and your family. With all of my love. Mike "Stu Boy" O'Brien

    LIVE A GOOD LIFE
    And in the end; it is not the years in a life! It's the life in the years!

    Just heard of Mary's passing and m extremely sad. We were high school friends and I spent time at her farm and tried to learn to milk cows. How she laughed when I told her I was sure I was hurting the cow. She was a sweet gir who held her youthful looks much longer than her class mates. Condolences to her familily. Diane Darragh Stone

    Mary was a hostess at Squiers Manor Bed & Breakfast for a few years after retirement from Stickley Electric. She had such an wonderful smile and a gentle and gracious attitude to life in general. She was such a pleasure to be around. Guests loved her and so did Virl and I. Sending prayers and blessings to her family and friends. Rest in peace Mary

    CandleWe've known Mary for quite a few years. Shocked to hear of her passing. Always had great talks and laughs when we ran into one another. Her son was actually in my class in school. She'll definitely be missed. Our condolences to her family.

    Mary was a very special friend to my mother, Phyllis Simonin. Mom and I send our thoughts and prayers to those Mary leaves behind.

    Mary was our neighbor for three years and my then 5 year old Makayla and her struck up a friendship that followed on after we moved. She shared her knowledge of plants and her baby rabbits with her and also helped her plant a jack in the pulp, they always lit up when they seen each other and we are all saddened by her passing. Prayers with her family from our family, and a special prayer from Makayla Kelsey
