A wonderful woman/mother.  I remember babysitting for your young family when I was in high school.  My she rest in peace.

My condolences to the family.

A memory from my Dad, Norbert Nilsson:  He remembers when Mary was a little girl and she just had a new little sister, Patsy.  She introduced her to Dad as "that's my new little sister, Contrition!" said Mary with delight.


The kindest person you could know.  That was my cousin Mary.

She was such a lovely lady. My condolences to the family.
