    .Mary was a beautiful person both inside and out. After Norm passed she worked from early morning to late at night to keep both the Iron Kettle and N N Moss company running smoother. There was only one way to do things in Mary’s world the right way! I learned so much from her about business and life. I was truly blessed to call her my friend. I loved you Mary May and think of you often .Rest in peace my friend.

    Just heard of Mary’s passing and sending my sympathy to her family. I was one of Mary’s girls from the Iron Kettle, and she was a friend of my parents. My father designed her and Norman’s’ home on Evergreen. It was a pleasure to know her. She was a great lady and will be missed!
