She loved her animals, including her cat Rosie and dog Biscuit. Mary also had a deep admiration for “57” Chevy’s. She was a lifetime member of Choptank Memorial Post 7460 Ladies Auxiliary.

She was a devoted wife for 30 years, as well as a loving sister, mother and grandmother.

In keeping with Mary’s wishes, there will be no funeral services. A private gathering will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in her honor to the Choptank Memorial Post 7460, VFW Ladies Auxiliary, 115 Sandy Hill Road, Cambridge, MD 21613.
