  1. Mary was my mother’s (Florence) roommate at McReynolds Hall. I not only visited my mother, but also visited Mary as well. She brightened my mothers life at McReynolds. Always reassuring me that she was watching out for her. She also tattled on my mom to me about some crazy antics. We had lots of laughs! She will be greatly missed.

  2. Mary always seemed so happy. Prior to Covid my daughter would bring in our Golden Retriever to visit with McReynold’s Hall residents. Mary glowed when she interacted with him & always would ask about him when he wasn’t there. I loved talking to her with her southern accent. I hope you are enjoying a Rice Krispie Treat in Heaven. RIP.

  3. Mary was near and dear to the Brown Family when we lived in Ypsilanti. We missed her when we all moved away from the area. Our hearts and prayers go out to her family, and we would love to host a celebration of her life this summer.
