I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Mary @ Hospitality House years ago. She was so sweet & loved her patients. We always joked about football games because she graduated from PU & I graduated from IU. When IU & PU played we always wore our colors along with quite a few of the staff. Mary was an amazing woman who I am so glad I got to know. You all will be in my thoughts & prayers & praying you have peace, comfort & strength in the coming days,

My condolences and prayers to the family and friends of Mary. She was an inspiration and a ray of sunshine many days at the YMCA. Will never forget the health and wellness journey she took on to go to Paris, France With her family. We set exercise goals to help experience everything she could. She talked about that trip and took all the Y staff with her. And then there was the Purdue football games experiences! Only time, I became sort of a black and gold fan. Loved Mary and I believe she loved her YMCA family too. Will miss her and her beautiful smile!

May God’s care be with you for comfort and peace,
