    Tracy, your Mom was fun to be with, a gracious bridge hostess, perfect afghan crocheter, all done with humor, lovely smile, curly hair and simply a gift to all who knew her. She already is missed. Love and warm hugs to you and her family. Harriett Pietak

    Mary was a joy to be with, always with a smile and a story. When playing bridge she could be a Master or just play “high card wins”. She just loved playing!! And the Bunco girls relished her sense of humor and all the stories.(even when she got the “rock”). We miss you already, love you. Carol and Ken

    Tracy and family, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was the nicest lady and spoke of you very often. As one of her BUNCO girls, she shared many stories and jokes with us. She always was so funny and really enjoyed being out and about. I will miss her and her smile! May she rest in peace. Ellen Anderson
