Remembering Mary


My youngest sister Mary was born February 23, 1959. When she was a toddler we called her Tiger because she had Tiger pajamas and a favorite stuffed tiger.

Mary was a sweet natured girl, good in school. She and our brother were born less than two years apart, so they were very close.

This is Mary's graduation picture from Elkhorn High School, 1977.

This is one of the last pictures I have of my sister. The last twenty years of her life brought her many physical and emotional challenges. She died unexpectedly at home, two months after her 40th birthday, April 23, 1999. I miss her and think about her often.
