Our dear aunt, cousin and friend. It took cancer three tries to finally beat her, but her years of dedication to cycling had made her too tough to conquer without a vicious fight. Born into an Army family, she enlisted in the ROTC program at the University of Missouri - St. Louis at the height of the Vietnam War. She graduated a Second Lieutenant and was sent to Fort Benning, Georgia. After leaving the Army Mary earned a Masters Degree in Public Administration and became a Scottish Highland Dancer and Teacher.

She died reconciled to God in the loving arms of Jesus. We shall all miss her love, sweet smile and sparkling personality.
