I'm sorry to hear of Mary's passing. I have a lot of fond memories from childhood. She was a great friend to my mom. She was always there for my mom after my mother had her strokes. I still remember her and my mom plotting to break my mom out of the nursing home.

My deepest sympathy

Dear Brennan Family,
We are deeply saddened to hear of Mary's passing. Mary was an absolute joy and we loved her dearly. My Mom (Shirley) cherished her time playing cards with Mary, Dottie, Beverly and John and we have many fond memories of those Saturday nights. I'm sure when Mary reached Heaven she was greeted by Shirley and Dottie and a few hands have already been played.
Much Love,
Marie Arre and John Newkirk

Dear Brennen Family,
We want to give you our deepest sympathy for the loss of your Mom Mary . Our Mom, Dot Africano cherished her friendship with her. The joy they had together talking for hours on the phone and weekly card games. I know they are in heaven together and enjoying playing cards together.
Our Deepest Sympathy ,
