To the Mary Petersen family: I will never forget Mary and who she was. We had a lot of fun playing pool. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
For the family of Mary Petersen, She leaves behind alot of family and friends and so many memories. I admired her so much, she was tough and yes, stubborn, but that is what made her Mary. We sure had some good times and she will be missed. Take care, Sandra Ellison
