She also celebrated many weddings in the Great Basin area. She was a member of the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra and the Carson City Chamber Orchestra. She played beautifully and was a consummate entertainer. Mary was loved and will be greatly missed by her family, numerous friends, and her cat, “Shredder”.
