So very sorry to see the loss of Mary. She was a crossing guard all those years ago when I went to Washington St, where my mom, Sylvia Shives, worked as a Home Ec teacher. Years later, I worked with Pam at Hagerstown Trust. May you find peace in knowing she is at home with our Father in Heaven.

Dear Pam and Cheryl, I was so sorry to hear about your Mom. I have many fond memories of all my years at your house. I always loved the smell of her Estée Lauder youth dew perfume. I also remember her learning to drive a clutch in her hot green car. The Daycotah neighborhood stayed the same for so long, the last few years have taken all our parents,things will never be the same. We were so fortunate to have had that experience.Hope you both are at peace with her passing.DebbieThomas Girard

Mary was the kindest person and a dearly loved one in the family. The Browning's were quite the clan and great family fun was had wherever they were. Mary and Snuffy had the best parties and picnics. Heaven has received one of the best. RIP, Aunt Mary.

Soar with the angels, Aunt Mary and rejoice in your reunion with Snuffy and all the Brownings. Aunt Mary was always the sweetest, most loving person. I have some of my fondest childhood memories of visiting her, taking her to lunch and car rides, and all the great Browning parties either at the Water Street house or hers. Truly a gem that will be greatly missed.
