Mary, Mary, Mary, we saw you many places as you were an icon in our area. She loved singing Patsy Cline and always told stories, some were perhaps far fetched, but she will be missed. She has a whole new body now and as she would end our conversations, God Bless.

Every time I saw her walking I would worry about whether she was going to fall. I would give her rides as often as I could. She will be missed by a lot of people here in Borger but I know she is in a better place. May she rest in peace🌷🌷

Rest In Peace, Mary. You always had stories to tell and a smile to share with everyone you met. Your parting words were always “God bless you” and your love and compassion for all animals and children were a wonderful example of your beautiful heart. You have gained your angel wings and will be missed by many.

Mary was at McDonald's a lot.
I took her to the bank and she didn't
want me to wait for her
I asked her how she was going to get home. She said she would walk.

We had some amazing, crazy conversations over the last few years. You made a huge impact on this community and million memories with everyone. My girls loved cutting up with you. We all knew you a little different than the next person buts that the lessons meant for each one of us. You will be dearly missed. It was a blessing to be apart of your life even if for a short time.
