    Mary was my class mate from Riverside elementary through Creston high school. I never really knew her well ,I was shy in grade school. Jr high and high school there were so many kids and time flew. But I always said hi to Mary in the halls and she always returned it with that big smile. When ever I think of Mary I picture her with that beautiful smile.

    Mary was a friend of mine for over 50yrs. From the days of the North Park Gang, when Mary told me that I was the only one her parents trusted for her to get in a high performance car, to her wedding with George and the battles she had with cancer. She was always, even when close to death, a very joyful, outgoing woman with that unmistakable laugh. I talked with her days before her passing and she thanked me for listening to her and I thanked her for being my friend. I will miss her, keep her memories close to your hearts. Rest in peace Mary

    Marybeth was the cousin I was closest with when we were just little kids. Our families were always together and since we are only 4 months apart in age we were close back then…and yes, got into a lot of mischief together. Even way back then, she had that big smile and special laugh that everyone will always remember. It has been several years since we last seen each other (and at that time she made us that best darn pot roast dinner, yummy!) and months since we last spoke. I do remember your laugh in that conversation and I am forever thankful for your advise on remaining positive. Thoughts and prayers go out to all who feel her loss. She will be missed by many. Special prayers and thoughts go out to my other cousins who have lost their precious sister. May you Rest In Peace Marybeth and may your smile shine forever in our hearts.
