I knew Mary my entire life, and took piano lessons from her for 10 years. Mary was a truly kind and devoted individual. She was a force of nature, and a great catalyst for change. Mary will be sorely missed. You are all in my prayers.

When I opened my 1st bank account at Farmers National Bank as I started my career as an Avon Representative she was really a big help to me. She was a well liked and respected by everyone who knew her. She will be greatly missed.

2121 Upper Bellbrook Rd. I have known Mary my entire life. My name is Bobbie Heath Strobhar, and my dad was Robert Heath, my aunt was Donna Dunmire and my grandparents were Leatha and Lawrence Leppert. Every time we visited Plain City, we would swing by the bank to stop in and say hi to Mary. She gave me a few piano lessons when we would visit, and I loved coming to her house. We had stayed in contact all this time, and even though she wasn't related to me, I felt like she was a member of our family, and I loved her so. The last time I got to see her was when I brought my harp in to play at the facility, and she was in great spirits and so happy to catch up on any news. With the pandemic, I didn't see her, and that's a huge loss as she was a "bigger than life" woman with a huge heart. This is a big loss for Plain City, but a great reward for Heaven!

Mary will always be remembered as the one beautiful "Lady" of Plain City. I remember her also as giving programs in many of our organizations (DAC and DAR) on her Hats and Hair Pins. She would do anything you asked of her. She truly will be missed but never forgotten. The family has my deepest sympathy.

Our deepest sympathies on your loss. Mary taught all four of my children piano between 1994 and 2008. We had 14 years of spring piano recitals and Christmas parties to enjoy, and many weeks, I would just sit in a chair and nap while the kids had their lessons. In later years, Mary taught my husband and I to play bridge, and we enjoyed our matches with Mary, Dave, Nicki, and numerous others at Mary's house. Mary was a true pillar of the community and a dear friend. She taught me how to cook a whole beef tenderloin for Christmas 2003, and we've had one every year since then. Mary shared her Grapefruit Punch recipe she served at recitals, and she has shared a lot of wisdom with me and kept me entertained with so many stories over the years. There is so much more, but I will just finish by saying, I loved hearing all the stories behind the ornaments on her Christmas tree. She took such pride in each one.
