  3. To Mary’s Family, so sorry to learn of her passing. She was such a beautiful lady. I always enjoyed being with her at the casinos. She had a love for cooking and shopping. So glad I was able to have lunch with a few months ago thanks to Mary Ann.

  4. When I was hungry she fed me.
    When I was homeless she took me in.
    When all other doors were closed to me her’s was open and welcoming.
    God bless you Mary Fiore.

  7. We are so sorry to hear about Mary’s passing. She was one of the sweetest and kindest lady we had the pleasure of knowing. She always made us feel so welcome and fed us the best food even if you were an unexpected guest. She was an amazing lady and now sweet Mary may you rest in peace, the Lord has gained a special angel. Until we all meet again.💕
