She was a homemaker and worked for many years as a caregiver. She loved working outdoors, especially in her garden, and enjoyed fishing in Indiana and Florida.

“My family and friends are my own piece of beauty set to life.  I am proud of them and my place in all their lives. I can go to the gates of heaven and know that I helped others and they certainly helped me along the way.”   - Mary E. Hartman (Mary Ellen, Micky)
