She believed in the power or prayer and lived each day for her family and friends.

    I am saddened at Aunt Mary’s passing. She was so completely devoted to her family with such a deep love for each child, grandchild and great grandchild. She had a knack for making all of her relatives and friends feel important. Rest in Peace Marie Rowello.
