    When I think of Mary, I think of her beautiful smile that could light up a room but more appropriately lit up other peoples’ lives. I know she’s now one of God’s favorite angels, as she served Him well here on earth, I’m sure she’s doing the same in heaven.
    My sincere sympathy, prayers of comfort and peace, to Zora, Max and Spencer. This world Is a far better place because of Mary.

    Thoughts of Mary always bring warmth and a smile, for she carried those traits with her in life. I was always impressed by her kindness, her intellect and her radiant energy, always evident from our days at Riley Elementary all the way through high school and beyond. You left us all too soon, Mary!
    Hugs to Zora, her boys and extended family.
    Class of ’76

    Zora, Max and Spencer,

    I lived next door to Mary (on East South St.) for 8 years and always enjoyed visiting with her and helping with the dog while she was away….I will always remember Mary for the kindness that she showed to others and how she always, always, always thought about others before herself…I know that God had bigger plans for Mary, not on earth, but in Heaven and now she will reap the rewards that God has for her….May God Bless you Zora and Family… 4 Rejoice in the Lord always, Again I will say rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be known to all men, The Lord is at hand. 6 Be anxious for nothing , but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard you hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7
    Humbly Serving

    I know that I had only worked with Mary for a couple years at the motor speedway and I didn’t know her as well as everyone else did, but she had a beautiful warm smile and a big heart and i will truly miss her.

  17. Rhonda Elston September 23, 2011 at 11:41 am

    My thoughts and prayers are with Zora, Spencer and Max as they mourn the loss of a very special woman. I have known Mary for many years, as we worked together at SIA. She always had a positive outlook and a smile on her face! I always enjoyed her stories from the track and I know the Motor Speedway will not be the same without her. She loved her family and was so very proud of Spencer and Max. I believe she is in a better place, but she will be missed dearly. God Bless you!!
