To Mary’s Family,
May Father God strengthen each of you and may Jesus Christ walk beside you and guide you through your sorrows.
I was acquainted with Mary through the Choir at Bethel United Church of Christ, Arlington, VA. Mary was a faithful Christian woman and used her singing talent to praise God. She enjoyed participating in Bethel Choir’s annual delicious strawberry festival. I recall Mary also had a passion for crocheting. Thanks be to God for the life of Mary. Peace be with you.

I was very sorry to learn of Mary's passing. My embrace goes out to John and the rest of her family. She and I were close friends when we both lived in the Arlington. VA area. I have many happy memories of choir and tone chime practices. She always sent birthday cards to me and my daughter Kim. We lost contact with each other about two years ago.
