Mary Dalton

Obituary of Mary Dalton

Mary was an incredible woman who Loved three things more than anything: God, Family, and Work. Her faith was a guiding force in her life, pushing her to be better and to show God’s love through her own light. Her family was the center of her home activities, and she enjoyed being the hostess during the holidays. She loved cooking spaghetti and chili for her family, and Christmas cookies were always a special treat. For work, she was truly committed to what she did for State Farm. When she retired, she found that the best way to fill her time was with reading, jumble puzzles, and Crazy 8s.

Mary was one of those lucky people who knew what made herself happy. One of those things that brought her joy was a goose statue that she had named Bridgette. Every month, Mary would dress her goose in a different costume to match the season. The biggest thing that Mary did for herself, however, was traveling. She earned passport stamps from most of Europe and the Caribbean. Traveling was, for the most part, her favorite hobby. Please take a Memory Passport to remind you of Mary’s love, and to remember that no matter where you travel and how far from home you are, Mary’s love will always be in your heart.
