I graduated from high school with Mary and am so sorry to hear about her passing. She also, while working at the court house, created Tom and My Marriage license. Her signature is still on our paperwork. Sympathy to all her family members.

The Kapak side of my family will always hold a special place in my heart as well as the town of Powhatan Point. Visiting Aunt Mary and Uncle Henry at Christmas time as a child was our family tradition as well as stopping by to see Uncle John and Aunt Vivian and Uncle Steve snd Aunt Betty Jo.
Aunt Mary was talented at ceramics.
She also worked at the county courthouse with Aunt Betty Jo.
She was actually proceeded in death by all of her sibling , John, Steve, my grandma Anna and Susie.
She was survived also by her nephew Eddie Kapak along with Paula Kapak Spence. My father , the late William “Bill” Dowler was also her nephew
Thank you for the memories Aunt Mary and family . You cannot put a price tag on the memories you gave me, my sister and my brother. Rest In Peace Aunt Mary ❤️
