Mary was such a soft spoken dear herself. Very kind and loving every time we ran into her. She adored her family, cherished her friends and all her fur babies. Love to all of her family. Hoping your hearts will mend with the memories you will always have♥️

Julie, Joanie and Tim. Les and I were heart-broken to hear of your Mom’s passing. Mary and I were cousins. We texted and called each other often sharing and reminiscing about all our memories when we were growing up. My visits to Stanley and Mary’s visits to Honeoye Falls. She had a wonderful sense of humor and we had many laughs. She spoke often about how much she adored her children and grandchildren. Please know we are thinking of you and you are in our prayers. Love Elizabeth and Les Desmann.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you all! Mary was like a second mom when I stepped out into the adult world. Having her and Ted as land lords was some of my favorite times.
