  6. Mary was an amazing lady. She always had a beautiful smile and a warm welcome for you. She loved life and she was always interested in others. Mary’s positivity and coping strategies were quite remarkable and a lesson to us all. We shared many happy times together including day trips to the sea. It was a privilege to have known Mary and she will be greatly missed by many. Sleep peacefully Mary. Janet and Steve.xxxx

  7. In loving memory of our dear sister-in-law Mary. We will always remember her cheerful disposition and in particular her determination and fighting spirit in the face of her continuing ill health. She always greeted us with a lovely smile and was more interested and concerned about others than herself.

    Rest in Peace Mary.

    Love Les and Val xxx
