Not only was she a excellent cook but also had some of the most beautiful flowers in her garden, which was the show case of the Company-Line. I learned a lot from her and her mom, Aunt Kate.

    My thoughts and Prayers for the entire family during this time of grief. Aunt Mary has a special place in a lot of our hearts. She definitely was a sharp dresser!
    My most memorable memories of my great-aunt are sitting at her stove getting my hair pressed as a little girl, bone straight, as only she could! Also her fussing at me for not bringing my babies by to see her as often as she liked. She said it in love, but she meant what she said lol.
    Seneca and Amir much love to you both❤️. Cousin Pam, Curkey , and Destry you are in my prayers. God bless you all right now and forever. I love you.
