Tuke Tuke! As I scrolled through my friends list on Facebook, you popped up like you always did! It struck a chord and I began to riminess about greeting you everyday with "Tuke Tuke", my nick name for you! You always gave me that broad and warm smile, as you shook your head at me every time. I miss you Mary. Yeah, now you are Mary. Until we meet again Tuke Tuke! Always in my heart and prayers, love....

I am so very sorry to learn of Mary's passing. I worked with her many years ago and until very recently saw here a few times a year for dinner. She was a wealth of knowledge and always made me laugh during our evening. I will miss her dearly. With love, Patty Raison

So sorry to learn that Mary has passed. She was a great friend and co-worker at DuPont. Always had a great story to tell and knew how to keep it light. Enjoy the Food Fest in the great beyond, Mary!!

So sorry to learn of Mary's passing. She was part of a joyful crowd of visionaries from the late-sixties, a loving, generous heart. I will miss her.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Mary will be missed greatly. I am so glad I got to know her better in her later years at DuPont and continued to meet for dinner after her retirement. She was truly a special person. My sincere condolences to Mary's children and family.

Not just a colleague but a true friend. I'll miss your keen wit and adventurist nature. No one can tell a story or deliver a punch line like you. Nora and Nick, many join you in your sorrow. Your mother was simply the best. I am going to miss her something awful.

Heavens, Mary has left us too soon! What a hoot we two were together in our 20-30's! Going to miss knowing she is around the neighborhood. Wishing the best to her children, Nick & Nora.

Mary was a treasure to all who knew her. I am so very sorry to know she has passed. There was really no one like her, friendship so true.

I was shocked to hear of Mary's death...she and I were both born in 1947, and we shared a love of history, politics, and music. I'll miss seeing her at the Blue Crab Grille for the music and brunch on Sunday afternoons. Gone too soon.

Nicky and Nora -- your Mom was one of a kind. Our friendship goes back to 1978, and I don't think I have ever met anyone like her since. She was incredibly intelligent, witty, funny and kind. I know you will miss her terribly, and my heart goes out to you at this sad time.

Mary, I only knew you from the Good Eats board, but you were always a warm generous soul. Your spirit shone through the keyboard, and we were all better off knowing you.

My sincere condolences for your loss. As you endure this difficult time of sorrow, please turn to the Most High God for comfort as his word assures us at Jeremiah 29:12,13 "you will call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you."

Oh Buerre, I'm going to miss you. We all are. Friend seems such an insignificant word. We built more than that. We built a family. Rest easy my sister.
