2: Memories of Mary are sweet because I had just given birth to two pepperpots-Kathy and Melanie. I found out I was pregnant and I actually prayed to God for a more quiet child and low and behold here came Mary. She was always a more quiet child and easy to care for. And always a more level thinking one –actually kind of a teacher even when she was little. Vernon put up an electric fence low to the ground to keep the baby pigs in and we looked out one day and saw Mary crawling on her tummy to get under the fence –she knew about the shock one could get if you touched it. We actually have a picture of this somewhere. The funny part of this was how further back she started crawling way back before she would reach the fence.
3: I will always remember when the kids got home from school what they wanted to do. You guessed it—they played school and guess who was the teacher. Mary was a bashful child and when talking to her-when she was little she would hang her head to the side. Vern always remembers this happening. He asked her who was the smartest kid in her class and she hung her head to the side and meekly said-I am. Mary has had always a sweet nature and has not lost this beautiful virtue. We are proud of Mary and the job she has done with her leadership skills she has passed on to her family. Love, Mom and Dad

10: Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories.
13: My fondest memories of my sister is going into her house in Kasson and going to all of the kids sporting events, ballet recitals, pageants, and shopping in Rochester. I also attended numerous vacations with Mary and her family and even lived with her a time or two. I remember many occasions where we made cookies and rented movies and sat downstairs in the living room in Kasson and watched movies. I also remember when I was really young, I would call Mary and ask her if she would go play tennis with me. It had to have been torture for her, but she did. We would meet and she would go play tennis with me in Kasson. I couldn’t have been more than 9 or 10 and certainly not skilled. Then we would go back to her house and make cookies again. We had a great time and ate lots of cookies on the way. ~Lynn
