Mary loved and nurtured more than 30 children throughout her life.  She taught them to read and love books, bake, play games, and create crafts.  She loved Disney and all its characters, the Detroit Tigers, and the University of Michigan. 

Mary loved to bake and made wonderful cookies.  She created many cross-stitch ornaments, pictures, and items of clothing for those she loved.  She also knitted many prayer shawls and other items that were given to those in need.
