What a lovely woman and her smile was beautiful especially when she talked about her husband. He talked about Mary with the greatest respect and love. A perfect marriage. God Bless

My mother-in law and I did't always see eye-to-eye, but her loving supportive nature in everything I did always overcame our differences. At the end of every visit, Mary would say "thank you for taking care of our daughter." If only she had known it was her daughter (Coleen) who mostly took care of me. I'll never forget the vacation we took with Jim and Mary out west with the travel trailer. One night I insisted on barbequing chicken and baked beans. Mary insisted that I keep the baked beans out of the trailer because she didn't want Jim to have any baked beans. She said they're too spicy for Jim. As stubborn as we both were, I kept the baked beans outside the trailer, and Jim snuck them back into the trailer. We laughed about this later, and I knew I'd met my match in Coleen and her mother. Mary was very supportive of me when I was accepted into the Permanent Diaconate Formation Program. I know I will have a prayer warrior in heaven when I struggle with diaconate classes.

We are so saddened by the loss of Mary. She was always so kind and loving to all. Her love for her family and her God were most obvious to anyone who met her. Her love for Her Jim was quite apparent from the moment you meet her. To Jim she is forever his "bride". There love each other was so special and so life giving. We will always remember our friendship and times we spent together. Our thoughts and prayers are with your loving family now as they go through this loss. RIP Mary Rose ... You are now in the arms of the Angels.

We have known Mary Rose for over 10 years and loved every moment with her! Our deepest love and condolences go out to the family and friends who say farewell to this precious soul! Just a few months ago we shared a lovely meal together in Boca Raton. We will always hold her in our hearts and await the joy of the resurrection one day! May our Lord Jesus bring comfort and peace at this time!

Our families intertwined for years. I remember mary gave me a nurse ca when I was young and parties at my parents house and I danced on your fathers toes. There are fond and treasured memories of Murray Ave and babysitting the then 3 off spring. I took the name Mary on baptism in catholic church, and both marys had and have a profound effect on my life. I know we must go on when someone is gone but to quote the movie bluebird every thought wakes our ancestors. My love to all of you There in spirit Jac
