  1. My mother knew Mary for many, many years. Also, as we would go to Discount Shoes, my mother and myself would always go through her lane. She always had a smile and so sweet. I am sorry for your loss.

  2. Beverly Duff, niece.
    Rest in peace Aunt Mary. May the Angels set you free to fly to the heavens to be with Debra, Grandma & Grandpa, Mildred & all family members.

  3. Mary trained me on my very first job at Rose’s Westgate in 1966. Then she was a Candler Market when I moved to Candler. Many pairs of shoes passed thru her line at Discount Shoes, she always had a smile. Rest in Peace.
