This news deeply saddens me. Mary was a beautiful soul. My heart goes out to her family.

Mary was the very first friend I made when my family moved to Joy Avenue (3rd Grade Horace Mann).  She lived right across the street from me. We shared a lot of fun and were full of mischief. So many memories!  I had my first Kool-aid stand with Mary as well as my first cigarette -- but not on the same day LOL!  She was sweet, kind and had the brightest spirit -- she will be missed by many. Rest in peace my friend.

I remember Mary from grade school.  She was a sweetheart and we had the best time playing with our group of friends, Mary Baker, Jana, Barb, Susan, Christine, and myself.  I may have the details wrong because my memory isn't great, but those are the girls I remember hanging out with. We would have dance parties and I remember dancing to "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and other songs in Mary's basement. Rest in peace, Mary, I have fond memories of you.
