My sincere condolences to the family. The first year without your loved one can be so hard to face, but the love of family and friends can carry you through. Please lean on God for comfort during this most difficult time because He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:6,7).

To the Family and Friends of Mary Elizabeth Kearney,

I was quite saddened to hear of Mary Beth's passing, my condolences to you all. She was a warm, caring person. We worked together at Delaware County College-southeast Center Learning Commons. Always a kind word or gesture, like when she'd decorate the desk for my birthday, or asking how my family was doing. She will be missed.
