She made many baby blankets and quilts and enjoyed crocheting. Mary was a member of the St. Peter Catholic Church in Ordway. She belonged to the Guadalupe Society of Ordway, and she was the President of the local Council of Catholic Women. Mary was steadfast in her faith, and she would encourage everyone to go to church. She also loved travelling with her husband Carmen. They took many trips by car and train. She was so much fun. Everyone that knew her loved her and will always remember her by her great sense of humor. She was very witty. Mary was a jokester and loved to laugh. Mary will be missed by all that knew her. Arrangements have been entrusted to the loving care of the Johnson-Romero Family Funeral Home.
