May all who knew Mary be blessed and highly favored of God and be comforted by His Peace. Mary is looking down with love and smiles and looking forever young and if you could only see her now and what God had waiting for her John 14. A place for all of us when we claim it through Jesus Christ. He gave His life so we could live forever with Him in God's forever heaven. Thank You Jesus! And be comforted to Know that this life is only the beginning and we are made in the image of God. Mary will be missed by all those who knew and loved her but we are comforted and know...

Mary Bea was a caring, fun loving, beautiful lady. Her devotion to family and God was unwavering. Her friendships were for live, your "ride or die" friend. She did for others before herself. Her laugh and smile drew you to her. Her beauty was not only on the outside, but through and through. She was the most honest, hardworking person I will ever come to know. She will be missed by all who knew and Loved her. Rest in peace sweet girl!
