In lieu of flowers, Mary's wishes were for memorials to be made to the East Moline Firefighters IAFF Local No. 929, the American Heart Association or to the American Cancer Society, although, she would have loved for you to enjoy some fun at the slots thinking of her.

Mary enjoyed many hobbies including crafting of almost any kind and nature, cookie baking for her family and friends, spoiling her grandchildren, and keno and penny slots with her husband, children and sister, Peggy, on area casinos.
Mary was a dear wife, loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She and her deliciously decorated cookies will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her.
