After Bob’s death in 2009, Mary shortly moved to Spring Ridge at Charbonneau, Ore., a senior living community, and of course not long after was elected to the board of advisors. She loved the community and made many new friends, and they all enjoyed laughing and socializing in grand fashion. She enjoyed many great friends there. Among those family mem- bers who survive Mary are: son Larry and his wife Sheri Stuart of Denver, Colo., daughter Betsy and her husband Ron Chaney of Washington, D.C., daughter Su- san and her husband Bob Masin of Portland, and son Bill and his wife Michelle of Houston. Mary had and was loved by 10 grandchildren and eight great- grandchildren. In addition to her husband Bob; Mary was preceded in death by her parents, Anna and Ernest, and brother Billy Hall. The family would like to sin- cerely thank Susie Stuart Masin and her family for tirelessly tak- ing care of Mary in her final years. Susie did so unceasingly and diligently, and the entire fam- ily is grateful. It seems in Susie’s case the apple did not fall far from the tree. Memorial services on the West and East Coast will be announced.
