Aunt Mary I will miss you greatly, but I know you are in a better place reunited with Uncle Don. I know I am quiet and keep my feelings to myself, but I loved both of ya’ll deeply.
I used to love coming to your home & playing board games & eating all the yummy desserts !!!
I hate to hear the news. Mary and I have been life time friends but not seeing her much the last few years. We went to school together at New Fulp and Ector Church Pecan Grove and Ector. I have spent night with her many times and picked cotton with her and helped her milk a few cows. I could always call her friend our growing up years. Although I didn’t see her often she will be missed. I loved her. Goodbye Mary
I have known Mary Lois most of my life. Her sister Wilma was my best friend in our teen years. All of the them were like family to me. I visited her in the Nursing home a few times in the earlier years and she always remembered me and we talked of old times.
What a sweet video of a woman I came to know through my newly found love and now my wife, Karen Marie Fulp (Conrad). Mary was always the most kindest and Don also about hosting us when we came up to Savoy. They even let me stay up when I was making a sales call on Folgers in Denton, TX. I thought I liked fishing but I believe these two outdid me for sure! Rest in Peace Mary Wrenn.
Love Karen & Keven Conrad!
We love you Aunt Mary…going to miss you and Uncle Don greatly. It’s been a few years since we were able to spend quality time together out at the Thousand Trails with you.
