Mary's last post on FACEBOOK (Dec 12, 2020) stated:

I still feel like I am recovering from one of the worst days I've had with the C.O.P.D., and I have hospice to thank for pulling me through it, with the help of my grand daughter

Night before last, I woke up with my standard bath-room run, at 4;14, then I couldn't get back to sleep I tried to fight through it on my own. The un-ability to breath right, and pains in strange places. My granddaughter, Kat, convinced me to call hospice, and they quickly came, knew what to do that helped me get over the attack! I am really glad that I chose Hospice, rather than the hospital. The same day that I had the problem with C.O.P.D. I also had a visit from the hospice pastor, who helped me find a bible verse, that my sister, Sandy had made me aware of. It's PHILIPPIANS CHAPTER 4 verse 7. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding ,shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. These words helped me so much, with my love for, and trust with Gods' plans for me. How could one accept anything other than the Heavenly love, that HE offers us all? I am so very thankful that Jesus is with me for ever, and for always!🙃❤❤❤

We certainly enjoyed when you were able to come to our class lunches as much as you did attending them. You will be missed once we are able to resume them without threats of Covid-19. Your faith prepared you for your transition and no doubt it was smooth and untroubled. Rest in Peace Mary -- Sandi Mueller Bressem

Mary was one of the kindest and sweetest women you would ever meet.  Life was not always kind to her, but she never lost her faith in Christ.  Heaven rejoices as we mourn.  Thankfully, all her suffering is over.
