Mary was always busy raising a garden, watching numerous neighbor kids and relatives, and baking the most amazing treats.  She was a talented seamstress, from making curtains and pillows to dresses for her daughter.  She was also an expert at furniture and cabinet finishing, working with her husband who was a general contractor. She enjoyed traveling to visit relatives and staying home to enjoy her grandchildren and great grandchildren.  She was very proud of her Icelandic heritage and will always be Amma to her family.
