The family of Mary Josephine Clark has received the following condolences.
You were my comfort, for however brief, You Sister Mary will always be in my heart.
We would have such a nice visit when we ran into Mary. She would love when we told her a joke and she would get a twinkle in her eye and a big grin on her face.
Our daughter would come home from kindergarten at St. Francis school and tell us about the nice lady who would help her with her shoes and coat.
She had a hard time learning to tie her shoes and Mary would take her time to help her learn. I'm sure with the kind way she was it made it easy
I'm sure Mary is at peace with our Lord and Blessed Lady whom I know she loved with all her heart
Our blessings to all of Mary's family.
Rich, Mary and Lacey Freytag
