Condolence From: Mark Mast, New Paltz, New York
Condolence: All my memories of Mrs. Dunning were from a very young age, probably as Jed and Mike were beating on me. I know her namesake, but she always reminded me of Martha ensuring everyone was being taken care of and had all they needed, often as Ed was the center of the conversation. She truly was a beautiful example of faith as her Mary/Martha personality blessed and challenged so many. I join with you in grief and celebration as we experience the pain of losing one we loved who helped form our minds, bodies, and spirits and as we join heaven to celebrate the life of a beloved daughter. Well done, good faithful servant.
May the LORD bless you and keep you. May God's arms be around you, and may you know grace and peace.

Condolence: To all of Mary’s family, my deepest sympathy. We were friends and neighbors for so many years. What a special person….and such good memories from our trips to Alaska and Hawaii. Mary was a tremendous cook and baker and we enjoyed it any chance we got. We enjoyed Christian Women’s Club and Bible studies together. She will be missed. My love to all, Sally
Condolence From: Mary and Don Weston, St. Augustine, Florida
Condolence: Don and I send our deepest condolences to the family at this difficult time. Dear Mary will be so greatly missed! I had such a great pleasure of knowing her through Christian Womens Club outreach and so enjoyed the times we got together one on one. I savored reading many of her wonderful poems. She even was so kind to make up a poetry book for me as a keepsake, which brought joy to my heart for such a dear treasure as this. May our dear Lord grant you strength and comfort as He carries each of you at this time. May His perfect hope and peace sustain you in the days ahead. God bless all of you and hold each of you close. You are in our prayers.
