Mary was my supervisor in Driver License for many years. She was the BEST supervisor EVER. I was honored to call her my DEAR friend. Highly respected and Loved doesn’t begin to describe my feelings for her. Mary touched many lives in more ways than she ever could imagine. To say she will be missed is an understatement. Prayers for the family and friends she left behind.
