I was saddened to learn of Mary’s passing. I worked with Mary while she was a technician in TI’s Central Research Labs in the 90’s. She was a wonderful and kind lady who was always willing to help. At the time I was a young recent college graduate and this was my first job. I was moving from an apartment to new home and needed some help decorating the place. Mary frequented flea markets and said she had an oriental rug that would be perfect for the new place. She was right and I still have it displaced prominently in my home all these years later. RIP Andrew Ketterson, December 20, 2018 Sorry isn't near enough to cover the loss of this beautiful lady. It saddens me beyond words. Love to you all.

Donny Ake, December 13, 2018 May you rest now in Peace. Thank you for everything you did for me. You taught me to cook great meals and how to do many things. Most of all you taught me the gift of pure love no matter what. I will miss you and always remember our time in the kitchen as well as all the fun things we did together. The Lord has gained a true angel and heaven is a little more precious now. I love you.
