I worked with Mary from 1979 to 1983 at the ARA dining hall at DWU while I was a student there. She was always so kind and one fo my favorite people to talk to there. I think of her everytime I hear of the town Farmer! I wish I would have seen this notice earlier, I would have attended the service. Many good memories of Mary!
