  1. To Mary’s Family
    Please accept my sympathies. I was a close friend of Bernard Wenzl, Mary’s brother, and Mary was in my brother, Bill’s, SMHS class. She was a wonderful lady.

  2. Our sincere sympathy to all of Mary’s family. She was such a beautiful lady with an award winning smile. Due to the extreme weather conditions, we won’t be with you in person during this difficult time, but please know in your hearts we are with you in spirit. Sending you love and prayers during this time of deep sorrow.

  3. So sorry to hear about your mother’s death. We lived on Mission Street & so did your folks—when my sister Shirley & I were young girls in grade school, occasionally our mom would let us roller skate far-away (down 2 blocks from our house), sometimes your mother would come out & visit with us. She was so kind & treated us like we would young adults, not little kids. I will always remember her beautiful skin & her smiling face. God bless all of your family & comfort you.

  4. To all of Mary’s family, I want to send my deepest sympathy in the loss of your Mother. I haven’t seen Mary in a long time but always loved her. She and your Dad are sure enjoying each other again now. I wanted to be with you for the funeral but have been a little under the weather this week and with the outside weather like it is have decided not to try it. Just want you to know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. May all your good memories bring a smile to your heart!! Rest in Peace Mary

    Your cousin

  6. My deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear loved one.
    Being parted from our loved ones brings pain,but soon we will experience the joy of reunion promised at John 5:28,29. when all things are made new and our Heavenly Father wipes out every tear from our eyes,and death itself will be done away with.

    May these promises comfort your family.
