  2. Mary, may you rest in peace. I am a fellow employee of WMC with Mary and I have to say she was a very kind hearted woman and always had a smile. I last saw Mary and her Fiancé’ Dr. Gary Hanson hand in hand with the most beautiful smiles for each other and I’m sure they will eternally be doing the same. My heart breaks for her family. I cannot attend the funeral due to work but I will always think of her. Dawn M Smith RN WMC
