She was a wonderful lady and God has a great angel to help for what ever job she has in heaven. Sadly missed.
Along with her sisters, Mary Kay was always a great host and friend at the bookstore. Their bookstore and coffee shop are wonderful parts of Shelbyville. To Mary Kay's family, and to Carolyn and Barbara, I send my condolence and thoughts.
Sincere condolences to Barbara, Carolyn and Michael. Mary Kay will be missed by all of us!
Mary Kay and I were SHS classmates, but our history goes all the way back to "Pet and Hobby Club" at Union Township Farm Bureau meetings. To Lynn. Michael and her sisters Caroyn and Barbara, I send sincere thoughts and prayers of condolence. The bookstore was a mandatory stop when back on Shelbyville's Public Square.
