On February 14, 1943 she married Amil L.

She is survived by a sister, Dorothy V. Gardner, Ft. Myers, Florida; and several nieces and nephews including Gary and Nancy Collins of Richwood.

In keeping with Mary’s wishes, there will be no funeral service or calling hours observed.  A private family memorial will take place in Claibourne Cemetery at a later date.

Now my Dad's fishing friends (Amil & Mary) are with him. Mary was such a joy and upbeat person. Our family enjoyed many weekends at Lake Erie with them. God Bless you Mary! Love, Barbara Baker Williams, Kathleen & Anne

Our Aunt Mary was always the favorite.  She was the relative that gave water pistols, who didn't care if your feet got wet,who had time for a kid because we were important.  God speed, Aunt Mary. You live on in our hearts.  Be at rest and say Hi to Uncle A. and Grandma and Grandpa.  Bonnie

Oh Mary Margaret how we will miss you!

Mary was part of everything that we did at the Civic Center, she played, she helped, she participated. She would always be the one to whoop with joy when we decorated for a special event.
She was always ready with a smile and enthuiasm for every occasion.
She had great appreciation for  everyday things, the flowers and birds, receiving notes and pictures, sending them in return,  choosing the cards very carefully so that they were just right.
She conducted  interviews for the apartments' newsletter (and she was really good at).
Like I said - every day walking down the hall, sharing a smile. Most of us us couldn't keep up with her energy, and she was determined that after the surgery she would give us all a run for our money. Now it's Amil who is going to have to keep up.
We will always think of you with love and a smile
