Mary was a true homemaker and her family was so special to her. She loved working with her hands and making beautiful things by sewing, painting, crafting, knitting, crocheting, and jewelry making, especially with others. She enjoyed working in fabric stores to support her creative hobbies. After retirement, she and Tom traveled in their fifth wheel trailer with Servants on Wheels Ever Ready until settling in San Angelo, Texas. Mary made things feel like home while Tom did maintenance at church camps. She had a passion for telling others about Jesus.
