Mary was my graduate advisor at Eastern and someone I would classify as a life changing or career changing leader. She impressed upon the importance of communication whether it be through assignment or coaching me on the origins of the word get me to stop using it so much. She coached me on career decisions, invited me and countless other students into her home, and encouraged me to mentor other emerging talent from EMU. She was a mentor through example, actions, and advice getting me to choose my battles more carefully. The world will be a little less bright without her this season but is all the more better because of how many lives she touched. My deepest condolences to her family, her EMU team, and all the students who suffer this loss.

Remebering Mary...
Mary, you were very instrumental in me securing a lecture position at EMU which has been my favorite and most fulfilling career.
Your most spoken feedback to a student was that their idea was “perfect.” I imagine God saying that to you as He welcomed you into heaven this week.
Another favorite line of yours was, “That deserves extra credit, but extra credit won’t help you in this class.” Maybe there is extra credit in heaven; you’ve earned plenty.
Mary, you were an inspiration and blessing to so many. Enter your rest, good and faithful servant.
Our loss is heaven’s gain.
