  1. We will greatly miss Mary and we treasure the many memories we have had with her over the 23+ years of friendship. We are grateful to have spent some time with her at her granddaughter’s graduation from High School this May. She was a wonderful person with a big heart.

  2. Nancy, Mark Alex and Lauren, I know that you already miss your Mom/Grandmother very much. She is in a happier place now – and smiling down on all of us. She always spoke of each of you with a smile on her face.

    Mary was a WONDERFUL friend and Co-Worker to so many people. She always took the time and patients with all the agents at Realty World Marketplace (new and old) to lend her knowledge with them. Always smiling. Mary was the ‘glue’ that kept many of us from losing it.

    To Mary, Thank you for all you did for me – and with me. I love you – Rest in Peace.

    If there is anything I can do for the family in Asheville, please do not hesitate to call 828-215-9349 or email at KayRWMom@aol.com

  3. I have very sweet memories of Mary while I worked with her on the Realty World Marketplace team. Mary was always someone willing to stop and give a kind and listening ear if you needed to talk. She will be certainly missed by all those who have known her yet I KNOW she’s flying free in spirit now…Go Well Mary with love and blessings!

  4. Nancy, I am so sorry to hear of your family’s loss. Although it’s been a long time since I’ve seen you, I could always tell that your spirit came from your mom. I am sure that Lauren has the same outgoing and enthusiastic spirit. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family in this time of sorrow.

  5. Mary was a strong presence in Asheville real estate. I admired her and knew her for the professional she was.

    It is difficult to imagine Asheville without her.

    My best to her fammily.

  6. My thoughts are with the family, at the time of this loss.

    I have three distinct memories of Aunt Joan. The time spent at the Toth residence in California, on our trip out west. Time spent at the lake in Indiana. Also, visits to the house outside of Toledo, I think around the time of the Watergate hearings–which were on TV.

    It has been a long time since I had much contact with this side of the family, but I hope that life has been good for Alex, Mark, and Nancy. Your mother was a neat lady, in my memory, and was very kind to me at the time my parents divorced.

  7. Mountain Housing Opportunities had no more faithful friend and supporter for the past 20 years than Mary. She always thought of and cared for the people we serve. Many hundreds of low-income homeowners struggling to have their homes repaired and renters struggling to find a safe, attractive affordable home to rent or buy benefitted from Mary’s caring and support.

  9. Ms Mary I will always remember your welcoming smile as I peaked in your office at Realty World Market Place so many times unexpected on my visits…. You were a treasured part of our FAMILY for 15+ years. Like so many others my son and his children were blessed with your wisdom and love far beyond words can express and I will be forever grateful. You were there for them when I couldn’t be with motherly love, a shoulder to lean on, a good friend to talk with and best of all your good nature. Julian will be a fine man when he grows up because YOU touched his life and shared so many wonderful, fun and happy times together.

    The sparkle in your eyes the last time I kissed your check was one of peace and contentment as the Lord was preparing his golden chariot to guide you to his heavenly kingdom, so fitting for your journey Ms Mary. You were one of a kind, may you rest in peace my dear friend.
