My condolences to the family of Mary Myers. I worked with her for about a year before she retired at the PennySaver. Mary was a very knowledgeable and kind lady. She made work a better place because of her disposition and organization. Thinking of her with love and prayers.

Mary was more than a friend to me. She was a mentor, a mother figure, a role model. I met Mary at a troubled and defining time in my life. At the crossroads between anger and hopelessness, Mary came into my life and changed it forever. We worked together for over two years at the PennySaver in Brea, California. Fresh out of college, I was getting my feet wet as a burgeoning technical writer and took a job as a proofreader for the weekly classifieds there. Mary was a seasoned proofreader and editor, and paved the way for my future growth and confidence in the corporate workforce. Although we were coworkers, the real quality time spent with Mary was in the car—hers or mine—as we carpooled to work those two years. Day after day, week after week, I heard story after story about her ten children, whom she loved and cherished, seemingly more than herself or her own interests. And she was the most dutiful wife to her husband, Ross. How do I know these things? By how she spoke of them. True, I only know one side of Mary, and all of her stories about her family. But what I did hear amazed me. She was so proud of her children, their accomplishments, and even spoke of some of their struggles growing up, always pulling strength from each other, demonstrating the positive effects of being in a large family. She adored her grandchildren and great grandchildren like nobody’s business. Indeed, I was often envious and wished I had been a part of such an awesome family. But where Mary really impacted me was in how she treated me—like a human being who was unique and had something to offer. Something I had never really felt. She gave me hope, a rare commodity where I come from. And without the least bit of judgment or criticism. I will always be grateful for having known Mary. Thank you, Mary, for helping me become a better person.
