Mary de­voted her life to her fam­ily and to God, liv­ing self­lessly, only for oth­ers. She was a very warm and gen­uine in­di­vid­ual, who al­ways had a pot of tea on and a place at her table for any­one who needed it. Mary had great faith; she en­joyed at­tend­ing Mass and Daily Prayer.

Mary turned her house into a home, for not only her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren but also for many oth­ers. Her lov­ing and gen­er­ous heart con­tin­ues to give, even af­ter death by pro­vid­ing the gift of life through or­gan do­na­tion.
