A celebration of life will be planned when we can all gather again to share memories and celebrate the wonderful woman that is Mary. 

We are remembering Mary with a contribution to her favorite animal shelter. Should you desire, the family wishes all memorial contributions be made to South Pacific County Humane Society in her name. This can be done on their website: http://beachpets.com/ways-to-help/make-a-cash-donation/
