Mary was a very special, loving person.

I have known her all my life. She loved

her family, friends and she loved teaching. She was a friend to all who knew her.

She is definitely a “Shining Star” and Heaven now has another beautiful angel.

She will always be missed and loved by all who knew her.

She was a beautiful soul and she was genuine.

Rest peacefully, Sweet Mary! Love you always, Linda St John
