Prior to the onset of frontotemporal dementia (FTD), which she valiantly battled for 15 years, Mary enjoyed a beautiful and full life. She was devoted to her family and grandchildren. Her wide range of interests included music, art, horses, hiking, bridge and cooking. Mary had an infectious laugh, smiled often and brightened the lives of those around her. She is now at peace in a better place and leaves us with countless precious memories.
