Mary loved entertaining her family and friends. She was a wonderful cook and a great hostess – and used those skills running the concession stand with her friends during her son’s motorcycle races! She enjoyed painting, sewing, gardening, and being outdoors. Mary was always up for an adventure, especially, traveling, camping, boating, and watching her children and grandchildren ride & race motorcycles. She got a thrill out of water skiing, and was a member of the local water ski clubs. When Mary and Earl retired, they moved to Lakeside Marblehead, where they took up fishing aboard the “Queen Mary B.” Mary caught multiple Fish Ohio awards. Mary was a member if the Massillon Woman’s Club, a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, worked at Dalton Knits Fabrics, and was a member of Massillon Jaycees. Mary loved to have fun - and made sure everyone was having fun too – she loved life!
