She was truly the sweetest lady on the planet! She welcomed me in the family the moment I met her. And that spirit of love is the anchor she instilled in her family. I will greatly miss Grandma Mary, heaven has an amazing angel now! The Sanders Family

Our Deepest Sympathies go out to the Durec Family on the loss of your Mom Mary. We were lucky enough to be friends and neighbors for 40+ years with the Durec Family and have tons of found Memories. I think you will be able to hear here whistle all the way from Heaven if you listen. Now she can be with John. We love you Mrs. Durec. Even when she was not feeling well, she had her sharp wit. The last thing she said to me was that she would be seeing my Mom soon. The Putzbach Family
