I am so sad to hear of her passing. There were many days as an outside Technician when I had to interact with disgruntled customers and bad weather, that Mary brightened, with her wonderfully
sweet personality. I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to work with her.

Butch and I are thinking of all the family and friends at this time. Mary was a wonderful woman. She was a great friend and was a joy to be around. She always remembered Butch come Halloween time, as she did many others. She will be missed. Many prayers go out to you all.
