I wanted Mary's family to know that her highschool classmates are greatly saddened by her death. We were planning to get together for our 55th Reunion in May but the Alumni Banquet has been canceled. When I notified classmates of her death, I received several responses that included fond memories of Mary.

Our Class has kept a small fund for our reunions and I will be making a donation to the pike County Animal Shelter in her memory.
