I am truly blessed to have had my mother Mary Bivens in my life for so long. In these last few years we would shop till we dropped at Boscov’s, Sam’s and Walmart. We would take long drives and talk about the past, her deep faith and find plenty of things to laugh about. She was always positive and loved her family fiercely. She was my mother and my best friend. She will be missed always. She truly had a “life well lived”.
Rest In Peace sweet mother.

I have So many memories of my Grandma Mary Bivens. As a child we spent countless summers, Easter vacations, Thanksgiving and Christmas at my grandparents home. She always made our time special with long walks, stories, swimming, trips to Hershey Park and family reunions. She cultivated our faith with a lot of visits to Seven sorrows for church, cleaning and bingo. As a little girl learned to love card games at the kitchen table, playing dress up and Patsy Cline. And as a grown up I watched her do all this for my own children as well! I always felt loved when I walked in her home no matter where she lived. She always had a hug and a smile for us. I am blessed to have had such a beautiful lady in my life for so long.
