Farewell Jim, you will be missed.

Mary  was a long time member of the Dunedin chapter. She served as Secretary, then Vice President and then President.       

 Mary formed strong bonds and loving friendships throughout her diverse work life and while pursuing her many interests and passions. Mary fell in love with Texas; a special piece of her heart will always reside there. Mary became a member of the diving community and was a certified diver, rebreather diver, and certified cave diver. Mary was a passionate member of the Scottish community; a long-time officer for the New World Celts--Dunedin Chapter; lifetime member of the Scottish-American Society, and devoted fundraiser for the Dunedin Youth Guild. She was a life student and teacher, a quiet warrior, and sister to many.

The constant in Mary's life was her dedication to protecting the planet; she served as a volunteer for both land and ocean. Known as a force to be reckoned with when organizing, Mary's spirit always shown brightest through her kindness, community support, and fun-loving escapades.

According to Aristotle, "The whole is greater than the sum of its part." Throughout life, Mary gave her whole self to everything and everyone she encountered; the part each holds dear is a special bond that will never end. We thank you, Mary, dear friend and sister, be free to soar to your new life with blessings.
