I loved her. Her sweet smile and how her eyes twinkled and how ornery she was .she always made me laugh ❤️

Mary Kay and i were backyard neighbors for at least 20 years. Our kids grew up together! Jimma and Michelle were best friends. She was a lovely person-i can still hear her laugh! I loved her so much!

I have a lot of wonderful childhood memories. She always took a nap after school, she made hot chocolate mix and always told us to stay out of it, we loved to carve big pumpkins, she would be a little grouchy when we went in and out of the house so much going from house to house. Love her so much. 😘

Mary Kay was a very special neighbor and friend. We lived across the street from the Winburn family for 22 years. Mary Kay was a good friend to our family through the years. We enjoyed a lot of get-togethers- she was one great person- she will be missed.

Mary Kay was always so wonderful to me! She and I worked together with HSH. We laughed, cried, and created havoc. Her smile was so genuine and I will miss it! I am thankful that she is now back to enjoying life on a different level. Rest well, my friend. See you eventually. ❤️

I am so sadden to hear of the passing of sweet Mary Kay, Mary Kay and Jim was my families neighbor for 50+ years, so many fond memories and so thankful for the friendship they had with my parents. Jim, Jimma, Kevin and Cherokee, my heart goes out to all of you, your family holds a special place in my heart.

From the first time I met you, you reminded me of my own Mother so much. You invited us in to your family with open arms. You had the most generous spirit! You loved people especially children! You loved my son when he didn’t have any Grandparents. We loved you and you will be missed.
