Mary was an avid gardener and active community member on the Long Beach Peninsula. She loved her life at the beach and made many friends. One of her favorite activities was riding the bus to Tokeland and winning at the casino there. She loved animals and spent much of her free time volunteering at the local animal shelter and adopted many cats and dogs herself.
