    Mary Lynn was a wonderful friend to me and my sister, Carolyn. I have thought of her a lot over the years.
    I know her family will miss her.

  5. A kind and valued co worker. Her laugh still
    rings in my ears and puts a smile on my face even learning of her passing. She was very kind to me when we worked together on Waco Dr.

    Mary was a very sweet lady. Always encouraged everyone. We had the privilege of knowing her through Mary and Sandy working together, and I also had the privilege of serving as her pastor in Elm Mott. Prayers to the family!

  7. I am so sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. She was one of my favorite people at DHS and always greeted everyone with a big smile. I will always remember her as a happy person and she always found something comical in all situations. People like her are one in a million!

  8. Mary was my first daycare inspector. She taught me so much. She was always there for you when you needed her. I have always had the highest respect and love for her. Just thinking of her has always brought a smile to my face. We were in a small town that had never had a daycare, so the children were always trying to get away with things that could not be allowed in groups. They would bombard her every time with questions of why “the book” said they couldn’t do something. She always took it in stride, even if I hadn’t been able to warn her in advance.
