Beach Trips, holiday meals, Lake Time, and Birthday parties were a frequent happy time together with all our families. Mary was usually the one that would say we need to get everybody together! And a Party was planned! We will miss her so much, and she made the best Homemade Yeast Bread!! Thank you, God , for Mary Roberts!! I miss my phone calls 3+ a day! Morning , Afternoon and Night! We knew if we were talking and one of our kids called, it was a quick Bye, and we would grab their call! Mary has 5 granddaughters and I have 5 grandchildren! We were always talking about them!! I am just selfish! Mary was a good and faithful servant! A wonderful Christian! Kind, helpful, looking for ways to show Gods love! She will be missed so much!! I love you!
