    Tanya and Russ, my heart hurts for both of you. I cherish the memories I have had with your mom. The dinners, brunches, holidays and birthdays!! I always had a great time with her!!! My best memory was when your mom hosted my entire family at her house in April 2019. We had such a great time and my family enjoyed your mom so much!!!

    I will always remember Mary’s smile and caring nature. I feel lucky to have been a part of Tanya’s CA family, and it was so great when we all wound up living in CO together. Mary always added sunshine and positivity to any gathering or adventure. She will be missed

    I have always enjoyed Mary’s company. While I was in Denver we visited the Denver Art Museum, Botanical Gardens, movies and the mall having lunch afterwards.. Of course, going with our kids for dinner and hikes. Our son was fortunate to have Mary as his mother in law. We will miss her.

    Mary was the best.  Funny and smart, she was up for anything, particularly political demonstrations.  She always amazed us with her resilience.  We loved her and will miss her.

    Mary was such a sweet lady! She lived next to my sister in Denver for a brief while and we got to know her over brunch one day.

    Mary was my soulmate from the moment we met in our dorm at CSU. We shared a special bond that included joining the same sorority, my going back to MA with her for a summer, her living with me for a quarter during our sophomore year in college, having two children the same ages, our trips to Cape Cod which always included time with the Steins, a friend’s trip to New England to retrace places we’d loved. Then she moved to CO, and we continued to spare special times, our private train trip on the Anchutz train car to Winter Park, her special times with our granddaughters, her surrogate granddaughters, time enjoying the music of Zach. Her keeping our dog for three months while we went to Panama. SO SO many memories that I treasure while I deeply grieve the memories we won’t get to make. Dear, sweet Mary, our whole family will miss you terribly. Dianne
