I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of Mary. I was a caregiver with the Community Nurses in her home for a short time before Mary moved to Silver Creek. She was such a lovely lady and I enjoyed our visits. RIP Mary.

I am sorry to hear of the loss of Mary. I knew Mary well as my uncle,
Ray Swanson, was her brother-in-law (he was married to Anna Jane).

Mary is my Grandmother and I told my husband what a wonderful, loving woman she was. She has a special place in my heart and I think often of the many times we spent the day together. The Lord has her wrapped in HIS arms. Grandma, I love you and am blessed you were in my life.

You were always a delight to have in my life—a giving and demonstrative person of love. What a wonderful example to me of a compassionate mother-in-law. Thank you for being in my life and may HE hold you in HIS arms always–Love ya’ Sharon

Mary was my aunt my grandfather’s sister, John Falcettoni. I have numerous wonderful childhood memories of her from the 1960s and 1970s when I was a boy and beyond! My mother, Alice Falcettoni Pivetta, and I always loved talking with her! When I was visiting my grandparents we always went to her home. I enjoyed it very much and I also enjoyed hunting with uncles Lyle, Andy, and Maurice and my grandfather John!! Lots of great memories! Not many days go by that I don’t think of her and family! A wonderful family.
