Deepest condolences to Mary's family and loved ones. I met Mary while working to develop an all-volunteer Waukesha County Branch of the League of Women Voters of Milwaukee County. Mary had years of experience with the League of Women Voters and shared how she use to make cookies for meetings. I knew instantly she was a special person and was grateful for her presence. She was an intelligent, caring, and magnetic person. She will be greatly missed.
