My Mom (Ingeborg Kretschmann) adored Mary. She loved working with Mary at the Berlin library and considered her a great friend. My Mom fondly remembers sharing lunches at Mary's house where "coming over for a few snacks" turned into a smorgasbord of yummy treats. Her bright spirit and calm wisdom will be missed.
Mary will be missed by our family as she was always so kind and generous to us. She was such a humble person who wanted only the best for everyone she knew. Her homemade soup always lifted our spirits when we were ill. We will miss our dear friend and neighbor. Our sincere condolences go to her loving children and grandchildren whom she dearly loved. The Strong Family
