and Michigan State University in 1967, She worked for J.L. Hudson as a buyer for the
Woodward Shop. She traveled to Hong Kong, Paris, Italy, and New York for work. She regaled
family and friends with her many work adventures. She met Joe while working at Hudsons.

They were married on September 25, 1970. They shared much laughter, joy and started
Camelot Cleaners in Berkley together. Mary had a wonderful sense of humor, a love of life, and
took great joy in her family and friends. She was quick to make friends, was direct in offering
advice, and enjoyed lengthy phone conversations. Mary closely followed and watched
Michigan State Spartans, the Detroit Tigers, and her beloved Detroit Lions. She was the rascal
of the family and always had a twinkle in her eye. She will be remembered for her beautiful
blue eyes, her sense of humor and kindness to many, her love for Joe and family and friends.
