Throughout Mary’s life she loved a good joke, a cold beer, Angel food cake, BINGO and bowling…lots & lots of bowling. In fact, in 1997 she was inducted into the Colorado Bowling Hall of Fame for her 50 plus years of teaching bowling to the youth of Colorado. Most of all Mary enjoyed telling a good story.
