    Mary worked for me at the IRS for a number of years before I entered the seminary and was ordained a priest. She was a beautiful Lady who was devoted to her family and to her Orthodox Faith and Church. May her memory be eternal and may God grant long life to her family and friends. She will always be in my prayers.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I met Mary many years ago when she came to a 75th birthday party for my mother, Helen Talty, at our home. They worked together at the IRS and my mother spoke of her often and with much love. My mother passed away twenty years ago, but Mary was one of her great friends and when I saw her name I instantly remembered her. She was a lovely woman, and if I remember correctly, had a wonderful sense of humor. Again, please accept my condolences.
