Dennis, I'm so sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. She was such a special lady, and I had kept in touch with her right up to the end. I have so many wonderful memories of knowing her and all of your family in our Lincoln Center neighborhood. Another angel has gained her wings, and I know she is smiling down on you and your family. May God give you comfort and blessings through your many memories of her. God bless you and your family! (Sibyl) Kay (Roberts) Bromert.

Dennis and family, We were sad to hear of Mary's passing but know your memories will comfort and sustain you. I know we smile as we remember those times. We have such beautiful memories of times with Mary. The Fife/Gillet family started from Ruby and Russell Fife were born and your grandmother came to help. Mary shared much family history with us when Irene Fife went to Corning for a Family Reunion over Memorial Day after Russ had passed away. Irene graciously asked; nephew Dave and I and niece, Betty to join her. We met Mary, Florence and the girls, plus Rosena. What laughter we shared and we did have a card game or two. She was so loving and kind and we loved her from the first moment. We have been to Corning 4 times now and always hoped we could meet you and your family. We stayed with her once during the Ragbra event. Dave ran to the booths to get lunch and dinner for us. Quite a memorable time.

Dear Mary's family, I'm so sorry to hear about Mary's passing. Myself, my grandparents and my cousin had the privilege of seeing Mary last summer on our trip to Iowa (we live in Oregon & Colorado). We had a wonderful visit with her and were impressed by how sharp she was at 97! She was a delight to be around. May her loving memory bring you peace and comfort.
