Though I didnt see her many times, I remember Mary as very kind and loving. I especially remember her from one of my few visits to my Pennsylvania family. She and Leo took cousin Mary Ann and I to the New York Worlds Fair. She had researched and planned our visit so well that we were able to see all the most popular exhibits in one day! Being from Texas, I was amazed that we could travel to another state, visit and return in one day! I know Mary was very special to my mother, June. My heartfelt condolences to the family and may they find comfort in her memories.

In loving memory of her very productive and family- oriented life. Mary spent Spring ,1945 with us in Texas. She helped take care of me and baby Ed Griffin while our Dad was overseas. My first political memory was her telling us at school pickup time, that President Roosevelt had died.
We visited in Bloomsburg and Leo only in 1956 and 2008, and she, Clem and Cy came to Texas to say goodbye to our Mom, June i1985. Ed Betty and I have fond memories of these visits. Annies posts have helped us maintain our the connection with her and her branch of the Saylor family . We are very grateful and will miss Mary.
