Stephanie, Jennifer and all of Mary's loved ones. I am saddened to learn of Mary's death. We have not been in touch for many years, but I always treasured her unparalleled energy. She was a wonderful journalist and a good friend for many years. The mention of U2 and Tom Petty certainly made me smile. May many warm memories comfort you all.

Mary was vibrant, spunky,smart, talented and loved her family fiercely! I was blessed to be Mary's good friend for 9 years. She was a touch of sunshine to all she interacted with. Her infectious smile, laugh and her love of family and friends will be sorely missed. My sincere condolences to her mother and father, sisters, children, grandchildren, cousins and all that knew Mary.

Mary was the kindest person I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She was a beacon of light in the darkest of times at our old employer. I will miss getting together and chatting about our careers over restaurant dinners and drinks. A talented writer and creative person gone way too soon. Fly high with the angels Mary. I will miss talking to you and your great advice. ❤️
