    I am so sorry for your loss. She was a very kind  and caring person. She was always ready to help me at St.James.

    Mr. Allen, dear Jonah, and family:

    I am so sorry for your loss and want you to know what a kind and generous person Mrs. Allen was to students at St. James School throughout the entire time Jonah was a student there.  If anything was ever needed, she was always there to help in any way she could.  We were lucky to have her as a part of our school family.

    Jonah.....Please know I am thinking of you and wish you and your family those memories of your Grandma that will bring you peace.  You as well will always be a part of our school family.

    Mary was my late wife's (Athalea 'Lee' Sullivan) best friend since they met while each was selling Real Estate many years ago.  Since my 'Lee' went to be with Jesus on April 1, 2016, Mary had kept in contact with me (calling almost once a month) to see how I was holding up.  She and 'Lee' met at Diamond Dave's when it was at Colonial Village for many lunches.  

    My condolences to the family, especially to Marwood, Jonah, and Ellen (the ones I knew).  I remember the Fish Fries that Lee, I, Marwood and Mary enjoyed at 'Track Inn'-no longer there.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Surely Mary will be sorely missed. After being high school classmates, many years later we became reacquainted during grocery shopping visits, then committees for class reunions. She took an active part in those.

    Thinking of you during this very difficult time.
