    Mary’s zest for life and her spunk made her one of my heroes. I looked up to her. She is deeply missed and will be forever in our hearts at Orion. My sympathies to her family.

  2. Julie Padgett says:

    Mary and I had many conversations about politics, family and of course…her cats. I can still visualize her walking through the office with her cane. As a part of our Orion family she will truly be missed – but never forgotten. May God bless her as she rests in heaven.

    Aunt Mary was such a bright light – full of life! She made me laugh so much. And I so appreciated her determination to make the world a better place… I’m sorry I can’t be there in person to give me love and hugs.

    Mary was one of my favorite people on.earth. I got to know her when I worked for H&R Block in Sioux Falls, but Ioved staying in touch with her afterwards. She was classy, smart, and oh so funny. I adored her. My thoughts and prayers go out to all who knew her and loved her, too. I’m pretty sure she is up in Heaven pissed off that she cannot vote in the 2018 Mid-term elections. Thank you, Mary, for all the awesome you brought to my world. <3
