Mary was a true jokester at heart. She truly loved her family and was very kind and accepting of everyone. Mary enjoyed reading a good book on her Nook, staying updated about family and seeing family pictures on Facebook, bowling, softball, volleyball, picnics, music, church and playing board games. Mary’s life motto was, Dessert First! A testimony of Mary was quoted by a dear nephew, Jacob Stout, “This is my Aunt Mary, she is beautiful and lovely, and everyone wants to be her friend”
