Mary was truly a unique person. She touched everyone who knew her with her big smile , infectious laughter and generous spirit. I enjoyed working with her at Berea College from 1994 to 2004, and I always appreciated her creativity and her dedication. Although unable to attend the visitation on Saturday, my thoughts and prayers were, and continue to be, with Clara, Anthony and Whitney, as well as the other members of Mary's family whom I had not met and with all the friends who meant so much to her. I pray for God's peace and for dear memories to give comfort to all of you.

Mary was fabulous. She was a wonderful cook, great at her job, a listening ear, intelligent, generous and oh so stylish. I can’t think of Mary without thinking of her style; from her earrings to her toe ring, she shone. She was so special and not afraid to be herself; if ever there was a true Berean it was Mary. I will miss her.

I’m very sorry to learn of Mary’s passing! I worked with her for a year and a half in Development — we were office mates for a time. She was altogether lovely and I send sincere condolences.

The statement that Mary was a bright light on Berea's campus and in the community was exactly right. She will be missed.
Although David and I will be unable to be at the visitation because of a prior commitment, our thoughts will be with the
family and Mary's co-workers and many friends. I enjoyed my years of work with her. Becky Nelson
