I was so surprised to hear about Mary this morning. She was such a loving, outgoing, friendly, kind person. She was an inspiration to my becoming involved in genealogy. She was so good at keeping the family together. My sympathy goes out to her loving sisters. Jean Henry

Mary became my sister-in-law 48 years ago and I always enjoyed her company. We had a lot good times together over the years at family gatherings. I will miss her friendship and amazing energy to accomplish everything she decided to do. Mary and I talked of her coming to visit with us for a week of two here in New Hampshire next summer and doing some day trips including taking the cog railway to the top of Mount Washington. Sadly I will do that without Mary but in her memory.

I loved my sister Mary, we were the best of friends. She was more than just a sister to me, she was an inspiration. My deepest regret as I write these words of adoration is that I am not able to be there with my family for Mary's funeral because of the Coronavirus, as I was a stroke victim in 2007.

Mary flew down to be at my side along with my other sister after my stroke. But that was our Mary, my friend, ever willing to help someone in need. She had a wonderful and loving heart for people. We see this in how she cared for her husband Bill and her children, Michael and Rose. What I will remember most about my sister is that she let me tag along with her in our many adventures when we were but teenagers.

One of my most loving memories is when my sisters and I would sing together, the "family harmony" was not only a blending of harmony notes, but of human hearts. I can now see Mary blending her voice with the Heavenly Choir, to whom she now belongs.

Mary, my dear sister and friend. I thank you for all the beautiful memories that I have in my heart of you, now and forever.

We were not only sisters, but friends, and friends never say goodbye...but so long for now.

Your sister,

Beverly sandeen White
