Condolence From: Vinny
Condolence: I only had the short pleasure of knowing Mary for a short time. She was an amazing woman who always put a smile on my face. I loved how spunky she was. She really told you how it was. We are extremely sad that she is gone and we send our love and prayers. If there is anything we can do please let us know.

Condolence: A beautiful tribute to your mother, Mary. Her family and friends are so lucky to have had her in their lives.
Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us everyday,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.

Condolence From: William R Shaner
Condolence: We are very sad to hear Mary has passed. Although we did not know her very well it is obvious she was a gentle and compassionate person. The proof of this in our eyes is the character of Chris who we do know. You honor your Mother with your intelligence, empathy and curiosity. Mom's are never really gone, they are us every day and every way.
Thinking of all of you,
Bill & Cindy Shaner

Condolence From: Jen Cunningham
Condolence: Aunt May opened up her heart and home to me and it presented a whole new world for me as a teenager. I remember she, along with all my cousins, welcomed me into their lives for a summer of fun, chores, frozen hamburgers, the Grateful Dead, live plays, weebles, Guiding Light and movies! To take in one more teenager for the summer and include me as one of her own shows how incredible she was and how much she holds a special place in my heart and memories. I am sorry I cannot make it to the services but know I am thinking of everyone and sending many blessings and light for her and the entire family.

Condolence From: Tim New Dawn
Condolence: HI Family I have a life time of funny events with mom over the last 2 1/2 yrs and wanted to share some stories I just got from the executive director at the last place she was at. With dementia, people sometimes become a different person. I can tell you, though mom had some heightened mental health issues at times, there was still alot Mary Measom, alive and kicking, and she was definitely still true to herself.
I can tell you that we miss your Mom very much.



One morning I was with a maintenance man from our home office. Mary called me over and asked me what I was doing and I said I was working. Then she asked why I was in a suit and I said I wore it to impress her. Mary stated in her great accent “Well it ain’t workin’!”



Another time I was looking for a caregiver and found her in Mary’s room. I remembered she kidded me about my suit before and I asked her if she liked my tie. Mary said ” ’Course I do!! lotsa gay guys have nice ties!!” I laughed….a lot. Then I said I really liked her sweater, and she said “ ‘Course you do!! Lotsa gay guys like my sweater!!” Unbeatable. The best. Everyone was laughing.



The last time I had a little time with Mary she was in the dining room getting ready to eat, I think. I was in a coat and I grabbed her hand and knelt down in front of her on one knee to talk to her eye to eye. She said “What are you doing?!” I said “I went down on one knee to talk to you.” She said “How did that go for ya?!” and I said “I hurt my knee.” And she laughed out loud. It felt like an accomplishment to make her laugh.



I know Mary impacted many lives throughout her life and it didn’t stop at New Dawn. She was a force. I am lucky to be at New Dawn and I am smart enough to appreciate that I got to meet someone special by meeting your Mom. She is one of a kind.



You are all in my prayers and the prayers of the entire New Dawn Community.



With Love and Sincerity,



Tim

Condolence From: Rosemary and Jack
Condolence: I’ll miss you Mary, the way you tilted your head back and laughed often over a memory of some misadventure inparenting.
Your price of family was fierce and sincere. Family stories were told and retold but enough to satisfy your love for your
bunch.
The search for Comfortable chair was always an expected holiday routine when settled at the festive table your
conversation was humorous whether it be political or about the weather. God forbid someone trying to sway your opinion
that wouldn’t hapen. We Marion Ave girls had just started a lovely friendship. God bless and thanks for your short time in
My life

Condolence From: Albert Martinez
Condolence: One of my favorite memories of Mary was during her visits to the Hospital. What I always remember is telling the nurses that Mary used to be a registered nurse herself and before you knew it I would hear Mary correcting me saying.. she still was one! Mary would share with them the years as a registered nurse and then how she went into the mental health field. I also remember her telling the nurses the story about how she didn't have enough money to finish her nursing school and how one of the nuns loaned her the money and Mary later paid it back. What moved me during these conversations was the nurses would often reply, "Mary we take care of our Own" which put a smile on her face as well as mine. I would say to Mary.. Job well Done!
