She enjoyed visiting with family whether at the coast or in the mountains. She especially enjoyed trying the restaurants and menus wherever she visited.

    Mary was such a special person. I worked at Union Bank in Henderson and she in Oxford. She was always helpful in answering questions and helping solve any situation that arose. She was a great mentor and one of a Union Bank’s greatest assets. She was a great co-worker and I learned a great deal from her. She will be greatly missed.
    Prayers to all the family.

    Ray and family, Jerry and I are so sadden by the passing of Mary. I remember Mary from when our kids were at Webb. And in recent years at Thanksgiving and fish fry gatherings at Dennis and Tammie’s. The side dishes Mary would bring were always a crowd pleaser. One thing for sure Mary loved that grandson Zayne and her family. Always the topic of her conversation. She was a joy to be around listening to her talk. Prayers for comfort .in days to follow.

    Boyce and I are so sad to hear of Mary’s illness and passing. We always laughed because of Burlington transfers would always put Boyce and Ray together from Halifax to Raeford, to Oxford. She was a lovely person and good friend.
