I knew Mary from our college years at USF. I recall her kindness and dry sense of humor. It was so much fun to get her to laugh. She was considerate and loved by her entire family. Sisters that took care of each other at all times. Pat, Molly, Martha and Jackie please accept my sincere sorrow for your loss. -Lynn Gonzales
