Mary's grandchildren named her "Gigi" and were the love of her life: Hunter and Keithley (Kiki) Felton, Madison and Lindsey McFadden, Lindsey (Barry) Duncan and a great-grandchild Chael Pierce and a host of nieces and nephews. Mary especially loved to love on people, but most of all she loved her Lord, attending church, and serving her church family.

The family would like to express their gratitude and love to Jamie Jacobs-McGraw for the love and care that she provided to Mary during her final journey and to the host of extended family and friends who have been by her side throughout this journey.
