  1. Mary was a lovely lady.
    We went to school together and most of the time we sat together on the school bus.
    I would get to see her at Elk Haven every now and then. She always had a nice smile.
    May she now rest in peace.

  2. I am sorry for your loss. When I worked at the Pharmacy and would take things to her, she always met me with a smile. Such a kind and gentle soul! May she rest in peace.

  3. So sad to hear of Mary’s passing. She was a lovely person who was always kind and thoughtful to all she met. Mary and her Mother were visitors and life long friends of the Wasson family since I was a child. Mary always remembered my Mother by stopping to chat with her and bring a sweet gift. She was one in a million. Rest In Peace, Mary.
