Mary was a large part of our family, and was a true warrior as she fought kidney disease and received dialysis treatment for the past five years. She is loved and will be missed.

A special thanks to all the staff at Davita Dialysis center for all the loving care they showed Mary over the years. She loved all of you very much.
