I have known the wonderful Tarnowski Family for many years. Mary was an intelligent, interesting woman and I enjoyed spending time with her. My prayers are especially with her loving sisters Liz and Anja. Patty Jamison

Virginia (Ginny) Brinker Dear Mary, your whole teaching career was about the home arts. With motherly care, you designed your courses to match the needs of high schoolers from the simple art of replacing a button or hemming a prom dress to the art of baking a quiche or mastering the fine skill of making pierogi. You taught your students the etiquette of fine dining and the manners for social interaction. Now, dear friend, it's your turn to be the honored guest at the Lord's table as He greets you with..."Well done, good and faithful servant; come and rest with Me in my kingdom." We will miss you at our table at our Felician Academy gatherings. With love and gratitude, Ginny Brinker
