I am so sorry! to Nick, and to classmates.

I saw next to Mary in our homeroom for all 3 years of high school and was so looking forward to perhaps seeing her at our reunion - hadn't seen or talked with her since graduation.

She was a good listener, and an interesting friend. Betsy (Hennig) Davis

I, too, had not seen Mary since high school, but reconnected with her about the time her family moved back to Ohio.  I enjoyed exchanging Christmas letters with her and hearing about her family and their adventures.  She sounded happy and enjoyed life, just as I remembered her.

A story from school:  Mary's father was a doctor and they lived down the street from our family.  Mary and I met at school and attended the same church. I had decided when I was a child that I was going to be a nurse (little did I know that causing others pain would be as traumatic for me as it was!).  Mary also thought she would be a nurse and she talked her dad into giving us volunteer jobs on the first Sabin polio vaccination project done in Cleveland.  We worked our tails off running vaccine to tranporters to go all over the area, filing receipts and logging orders for more medication.  By the end of the day we were both exhausted--and were probably the only ones in the city that hadn't had our own sugar cubes.  So we lined up and Dr. Hopwood gave us our doses because we weren't licensed and couldn't do it ourselves!!!  Mary was always sweet and laid back and was a great friend for a lonely new kid in Shaker to have as a friend.  I will miss the contact but remember her always with fondness.

Mary and I were good friends in high school and had lost touch. Her sister-in-law lives here in Milwaukee and worked at Marquette University, where I worked and met her. Through the Shaker alumni directory, she learned I had gone to Shaker and asked whether I knew Mary.Then she made sure we connected by email. I was in Cleveland last spring, and Mary and I made a point of getting together. We found that we still had so much fun and so much in common that we moved from lunch to her house for a long afternoon of reminiscing and updating. Her husband took our picture, and it's posted on my profile page. I was SO looking forward to seeing her at the reunion, and am greatly saddened to receive this shocking news. She and her family are in my thoughts and prayers.
