She graduated Chico State College, lived in Gridley and taught Kindergar- ten at Woodrow Wilson School for 28 years. In re- tirement, she enjoyed a second home in Hawaii for 20 years. Mary was musically gifted and studied as a concert pianist. She shared her music with family and friends, playing for school functions and special occasions. She was active in the community through Junior Women's Club, Lioness and the Presbyterian Church. She brought creativity into her class room, educating children through her interests in music, art, history and science. In the same fashion, she cre- ated a home full of love, compassion, encouragement, support and guidance. She engaged with her grand- daughters as a dedicated and loving presence in their lives, sharing her gifts and enthusiasm for education and the arts. She played the piano in her home for en- joyment, and her family all enjoyed singing with her. It was a wonderful gift that she provided to her fam- ily. With summers away from the classroom, she en- joyed gardening.and sharing her home with pool par- ties for friends and family. Camping was a weekend ritual, and Mary baked and cooked all week to pro- vide for the family's comforts while enjoying the great outdoors. She encouraged her children to participate in the county fair, exhibiting floral arrangements, art and science projects. Libby's cannery provided equip- ment for the public to can fruits and vegetables for their pantries. Mary and her family all participated in the process, packing the cans, adding syrup or brine and watching as mechanized belts moved the cans for sealing. She encouraged her children to join in the school band, sports, Cub Scouts and Brownies, De- molay and Rainbow. She made sure that her grand- daughters experienced wonderful summers in Grid- ley also, swimming, going to vacation bible school and sharing time with second cousins, always providing them with an enriching musical and enhanced en- vironment. When retirement came, Mary and Dick returned to their beloved Hawaii, where in their first years of marriage, Dick had been stationed with the U.S. Navy. They purchased land on the big island and built a home. They enjoyed the lifestyle that Hawaii has to offer, beautiful weather, gardens full of flowers, fresh fish, fruit, golf, and a relaxed life style. It was a delight for them to have visitors there. Mary alway displayed caring, thoughtfulness and creativity in her children's upbringing and they're grateful for the leg- acy she has given them. She is survived by her husband Dick; son Rich- ard D. Gregg, of Oroville; daughter Kim Gilpatriek, of Nevada City; son Michael Gregg, of Susanville; granddaughter Miehele Florentz; great-grandchil- dren, Kylie, Tyler and Tucker Florentz, of Orangevale; and step-granddaughter Victoria Olsen, Petty Officer serving in U.S. Navy.
