4 thoughts on “MARY J. NETHING”

  1. My sincere sympathy to Mary’s family. She was always such a sweet person, good friend and classmate. We had many good times together. I wish that we could have gotten together to visit since she moved back to the area, but life throws us many curves, so it didn’t get to be.

  2. Our sympathy to all of Mary’s family. I have many fond memories of fun times with Mary in High School. I was always hoping to get together with her when I learned she moved to Cambridge. Just a few weeks ago, I just kept thinking about her, and wondering how she was doing. I was able to get her phone number from Judy Leinonen and called several times throughout the day, but couldn’t reach her. How I wish I had been able to reach her just to visit awhile. We had many good times and lots of laughs in our teenage years. One hot summer day, she came out to my house, and Mary, Sis and I went down to Snake River swimming. I didn’t know she couldn’t swim very well, but quickly found that out when she stepped into a drop off and started to panic. Luckily Sis & I were able to get her back to shore safe and sound, but we were all pretty shook up. I wonder if she ever did much swimming after that. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you in the difficult days ahead.

  3. Sympathy to you Chad, at hearing the passing of your sweet Mother. Growing up I saw your family a bit at Grandma Nethings’. We also visited your family when we came to Thief River. Your mom took the time to make me feel welcomed. In more recent years your mom and I exchanged Christmas cards. I was always touched that she wrote a personal note. She was a special lady, but you already knew that.

    Blessings to you,
