Memories Timeline


  1. Mary will always be remembered as one of the first residents of Stonewall Manor. Our children grew up together. We shall miss her pleasant personality and infectious cheerfulness. May she rest in peace.

  2. We’ve enjoyed Mary’s friendship for more than 40 yrs. She was one of the most cheerful people we’ve known who could brighten up any room with her smile. She adored Luther & family. Heaven will be a brighter place because of her.

  3. We are all sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. A mother’s love is eternal, but we know you are missing her. Deepest condolences from your friends at the Washington Post Plant, Postpress group. Conrad Rehill, Floyd Swanson, Joe Porter, Mingjie Wang, Gita Ganesh, Carol Camero.

  4. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of weeks spent in the summer with my aunt, uncle, and cousins. Sight-seeing in DC was always a highlight! Our hearts and prayers go out to Mary’s family. May the Lord comfort and keep you.

  5. Daryl, There is a deep comfort in growing up together and sharing a life long friendship. My heart reaches out to your family during this time. I wish that I had known your Mother but I’m certain that she was Salt of the Earth! May her loving influence continue to live on. Much Love and a Big Hug.

  6. Daryl,On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to send our love and prayers to you and your family on hearing of the loss of your mom. On a recent visit to your house a couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to sit with your parents and brother Ronnie over a cup of coffee. A little while later you joined us and I was happy to have witnessed the special bond you have with your family. For the short amount of time I was there, your mom and dad made me feel very welcome and not only did i hear stories from your moms past, but she also made me feel welcome and important by asking about myself and my family. As the visit came to an end she was leaving the room, she passed your dad on the way out, but not before stopping as he stood to kiss her. I was touched by this brief show of affection and felt honored to witness this love they have for each other..this is the only memory I have of her but it is one that I will hold close to my heart.
