Mary is survived by two loving daughters Diane Meyer Allweiler and Donna Brooks, son-in-law Joseph O. Allweiler, Jr., sister and brother-in-law Catherine and Gordon Leis, sister Eileen McSherry, and sister-in-law and brother-in-law Dorene and Howard Guthrie, along with numerous nieces and nephews in the United States and Scotland as well as her “Child of the Heart” Chriss Storms, and Chriss’ children, Claudia, Megan and Michael.
Mary will be remembered for her beautiful and sweet smile, kind heart, and loving spirit.
God looked around his garden and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful; he always takes the best.
He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered, “Peace be thine”.
It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone, for part of us
went with you the day God called you home.
