Condolence & Memory Journal

So sorry for your loss

You played an important role as the matriarch of the McKenney family after your mother passed in 1993. I always appreciated that you took the time to come out to our wedding in 1978 and your graciousness when Sharon and I visited you a couple of years later. I will always regret not knowing you better. Rest in Peace Mary

Love --
Greg Nickels
Nephew and Godson
