 Mary married Bill Conger, another WHS grad a year older than us. They had, I believe, three children. Mary fought breast cancer for several years, with a long remission before the final battle. She fought with such courage, dignity and grace that she was honored at Race for the Cure and other events to raise money for cancer research. 

Mary was always kind, sweet and humble. She was a lovely person.
