Mary was always one of my favorite people to share a conversation. She was delightful and insightful. Always asking questions wanting to know God's will, and made us think. We cherish the memories we have of her and Charlie. Greatly missed. Elwood and Patty

Barb and family, I am so sorry for the loss of both your parents. I am seriously shocked and cannot express how much I cared for your mom. I only knew your dad through her. She will be greatly missed. Anytime I go into the store where she worked, I think of her. Love you girl. God bless you and your family.

I sent message to your family but not sure it went thru so here it is again. Mary and Charlie and I were friends about 50 yrs ago. We were dating friends and became good friends. We hung out during the wknds and summers. Mary and Charlie stood up for us when I got married. They were great friends and we had a lot of fun. Lost contact with them when I left Missouri but would see them now and again when I came home for visits. We helped each other thru some difficult times and came out winning. I will always remember them for their kindness and friendship. I’m so sorry for your loss and pray for your families. Just know y’all had a great Mother and Father. Sending prayers and hugs :pray::pray::heart::heart: Joan Wustt
