Her many hobbies included purchasing and restoring antique furniture, including a vast array of priceless antique clocks. She also took great pride in her large collection of Hummel figurines.

She had a special talent for arranging fresh flowers, even assisting with an occasional wedding for family and friends. Mary also loved to embroider and knit, taking great pride in the number of items she made and shared with the people she loved. Mary rarely turned down an opportunity for a fun game of cards or to travel, especially to the California Coast.
Mary will be deeply missed and forever loved by all.
