Mary and John retired to Traverse City, where they enjoyed salmon fishing, boating, traveling and visiting family and friends. As her health declined, Mary agreed to move to North Augusta to be near her beloved niece, Ginny and her husband Buck Ellis. She enjoyed six wonderful years of happiness while living in North Augusta.
