To the family of Mary Callan, Mary was a pleasure to work with, she always had a sense of humor and something funny to say each day to bring laughter into the library. Her presence will surely be missed at the library, especially during our holiday parties. I wish to express my deepest sympathy to her family for their loss of a great person. sincerely Paulette Moye Co-Worker
While we worked together at the library, Mary was like an aunt to me, and I will carry her lively humor and character in my heart forever. My sympathy to all of you in her family, who surely miss her dearly.
I was friends of Sean during junior high school. Mrs. Callan was a very helpful and understanding person to Sean and me when we were growing up. She definitely worked hard and tried hard at everything she did. My very late condolences to the family. She is someone that will be missed. May she rest in peace.
