Memories

Mary was one of my best friends in High School along with Terri Kelly. She was beautiful and had a kind heart even when we were young. I remember when the three of us gave blood to the Red Cross for the 1st time. We were understanding that if we left school early to give blood that we could take the rest of the day off. So we gave blood and hung out the rest of the day. Needless to say, we were wrong and got detention the next day for not returning to school. My sincere sympathy to her Family.

I worked with Mary at IFP many years ago. I also went to School with Mikki & Leilani. Mary was always so sweet to me. Motherly. I loved when we were paired togther. She loved you girls very much. She would always tell me what you were up to, just like a proud mom would. Rest assured she now sleeps in the arms of the Angels, as she watches over you.I am so sorry for your loss.

Dear sweet aunt Marry. Yet again i sit here with a heart filled with regrets. Its heavy on my mind how fast time is flying and those i admire the most are leaving us way to soon. Regrets of not seeing more of each other when all we had was time. The things to me that makes the regret, would of, could of and should of fade. Is the fact that i had the honor and privilege of having you as my aunt! I'll never forget how sweet and nice you always treated me and i can honestly say that as far back as i can remember NEVER once did i ever see that beautiful face of yours without that UNBELIEVABLE,UNBEATABLE,OVERWHELMINGLY,HUGE O'Connor smile! I'd like to say its rare but its pretty obvious our entire family is blessed with this "smile" that makes everyone smile. Every memory of grandpa,grandma,Rayray,uncle John, aunt Sheila and you are filled with miles and miles of smiles. As you walk with Jesus into heaven i promise, you and everyone else there will be making the angels smile with your one of a kind O'Connor smile. Love you aunt Marry and I'll miss you

I spent nights babysitting Lani and Mikki and just hanging out at Auntie Mary's house. She was always welcoming and always so good to me. I was spoiled yet again by another loving Aunt! So many fun memories. I am so blessed to have known her and been able to spend time with her as a kid and young adult. You will be missed Aunt Mary! Love and hugs to you in heaven. Give my brother, Shiela, John, Julie, the Grannies and Grampies a big hug for me :)

Memories

I remember when I was about 10 all I did was run, I was fast! Lol but at night I would get what she called "growing pains" in my knees. It would hurt so bad id cry:( my mom would pick me up and rock me back and forth rubbing my knees telling me it's just growing pains and it will be ok. She would do that until I feel asleep then put me back to bed without me even knowing:) She was right, I never get them as an adult! I also loved going to Gillen's farm and playing with Jess, Ronnie and Jack, while mom hung out with Auntie Sheila and Marty! Great memories! I loved going to grandma and grampa's camper on Cedar, I use to get sooo mad that she would make me wait 30 minutes to go back into the water after eating! 30 minutes was an eternity to a kid lol. She was a wonderful loving mother and will be greatly missed and loved! Love you mom

Memories

I remember being out at Grandma and Grandpa's farm and sitting at the table with Mary, Jim, John and Sheila. I couldn't wait to sit at the big table. We used to all hang out in the porch and tease each other (mostly Jim and John teasing all of us girls). Mary was always sweet to my sister and I - I always looked forward to babysitting for Lani and Mikki. She was so beautiful - like her picture - her beautiful smile...that's how I will always remember her.
