She loved making dolls, visiting Turning Stone Casino and playing Bingo. Mary enjoyed traveling and visited California, Florida and Myrtle Beach. The Adirondacks were also a favorite destination and many summer vacations were spent at Lewey Lake. And she never missed watching Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara in “Gone With The Wind,” her favorite movie. There were many other classic movies that she enjoyed but her heart, like Scarlett’s, never truly left Tara.
