Working with Mary she ran a fairly tight ship at MTS. Stingy with paper clips and pencil leads. But she let us have our in office baby/bridal showers. Even after we blew a breaker that affected us and the Planning Dept. next to us. Outside of work you ensured a good party. But come Monday AM full respect was back in order - Posted by: Pat Bowman (Co-worker she was my boss) on: Jul 31, 2019
