Mary worked in food service the majority of her life; Rosamond's Cafe in Isom and the Isom Custard Stand. She loved helping prepare food for holidays and other family events and taking food to family when the urge moved her. She especially enjoyed going to flea markets and yard sales. Frequently you would see her with ID, Elise, Coleen, Pat, and Paul out and about. She loved both her families and spending time with them whenever she got the chance. We all will miss her feisty personality. 

Covid protocol will be required, so everyone is expected to wear a mask and stand 6 feet apart.
