    Nancy and Family, I am more than sorry about Mary. Mary was a special person and friend. Even as life gets in the way, I have always considered Mary to be a best friend, a forever friend. From being 5 and playing in the street to sharing a locker all 4 years of high school, the continued friendship into and through adulthood. Mary will forever be in my heart. Love and prayers to you all.

    Ma McNamee, Ann, John, Tim and the whole family. I don’t even know where to start, she was a best friend who shared so much of my life. She was a rock to lean on, a friend with amazing advice and someone to have the best of times with. She was not just my roommate for years, she was a sister friend that I love with all my heart. She brought me into her family and you all took me in so generously. My heart is broken knowing my amazing friend has left far to soon. Please know how much I love all you and am thinking of you all. Sending my prayers and hugs.

    Mary was my friend I met at Stout. She was such a good person and we had so many laughs and good times. I cannot believe she is no longer with us.

    Please accept my condolences. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

    I worked with Mary 20 years ago and reconnected just over the past few years. My thoughts and prayers go out to the dear McNamee Family. You have gained another Angel watching over you.

  6. Karin (Olsen) Dykstra says:

    My heart is broken. So many memories, beginning in 5th grade and spanning all these years. A friendship that was always there, sometimes in the background as paths were farther apart and then, intersecting over coffee or dinner and it was like we were never apart. A dear, forever friendship.

    Peace to all as you remember and grieve.

    It is hard to comprehend the loss of sweet Mary. I am so saddened. I am sending hugs to my cousins and Aunt Nancy. This is difficult to understand but your love for each other will overcome anything. Love you McNamee’s.

    Mary’s family and friends are in my prayers. I’m saddened and sorry for this loss.. Mary and my path would cross many times through the years. She would always greet me with a hug and we would laugh about the random meetings. She is missed.

  9. Sue Wendel says:

    I am heartbroken by the loss of Mary. She had such a beautiful soul, was so sweet and fun. We met at Lifetime and had a tight knit group who supported each other to achieve our goals. Mary and her friend, Peka, were our comic relief and helped all of us through. I truly loved Mary and know she is smiling down with her little giggle. The world has lost a beautiful person much too soon. Prayers to Mary’s mom and the rest of her family.
