I am so verry sorry to learn of Mary's passing.  Mary and I waited at the same bus stop to catch our bus to F.E. Madill, and I have fond memories of her from that time.  Dad always had a great deal of respect for Mary because of her hard work in the community including at the Annual Lucknow Legion Veterans' Dinner.

We are sending out our most heartfelt condolences to all of Mary's family.  We are so very sorry for all of your loss. Mary was such a wonderful part of Lucknow's community, devoting herself, selflessly to many committees, and events. She lit up when she would talk about Jaxon, and their outings together, so proud of the smart young man that he was becoming. Our thoughts are with you all. 

Sending all our love xo

What is dying? A ship sails and you stand watching till she fades on the horizon and someone beside you says "life is gone". Gone where? Gone from your sight, that is all-in truth she is just as large as when you saw her last...the diminished size and total loss of sight is in us, not in her...and just at that moment when she leaves our sight and we say "She is gone" there are others on the other side who are watching her coming and voices take up a glad shout...there she comes....and lucky for her, her dad and the rest of her family are all waiting for her.                                   My condolences to all. RIP Mary

There are going to be some tough days ahead for you and the kids.  I pray God will give you peace and comfort as you go forward in the next phase of your lives.  

Gina Stam and children  - 2017-08-14 10:31:47 - Email

Wayne, Micheal, Kristi, Jaxson and family sorry for your loss. Mary was one of the first people who introduced herself to me when I moved to town and even after I moved away she was one of the  first to greet me when I am came back to Lucknow for a visit. Mary always shared a proud moment with me regarding her pride and joy grandson Jaxson and a funny story about "herkys silly room". Mary truly was a kind soul. 

Please remember although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow. Those we love don't go away. They walk beside us everyday. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Love Gina & children
