Mary was one of the most exceptional people ever brought into my life. Mary is now with her soul mate Noel, I will miss them both dearly.
I have such fond memories of Mary. She always made me smile! We are going to miss her but are thankful she’s with Jesus and Uncle Noel, Grandma and Grandpa DeVito, and Grandma Cope.
Love Joy and Bob
Aunt Mary was always such a dear and favorite aunt, my mom’s baby sister. We have so many fond memories of her jovial spirit. Although we are sad at our loss, we are happy she is finally Home with our Lord and Saviour. We love you, Aunt Mary.
Marlin & Ann Ashcraft family
Floyd and family,
So sorry to hear of the loss in your family. Prayers are with you.
Our condolences to Judith and Jerry in the passing of our Aunt Mary Ellen. I remember family visits to Uncle Noel and Aunt Mary Ellen’s at Euclid Beach. The trip with Noel’s & Jerry and our family (Norman’s) to Watkins Glenn was also a childhood memory. Surely Aunt Mary Ellen is playing the organ in heaven now!
