Mary was always such an encouragement to us when we were MYF counselors so many years ago. I know she will be greatly missed.

Mary was such a blessing to our family.. from her friendship with my mom Ona Coleman (more than 60 years since high school) to her visits to Bellville to pick up veggies thoughout the years... she was a beautiful person inside and outside.... We are praying for you all - knowing that she is enjoying sitting at the feet of Jesus this day... We love you all..
