The outpouring of love and support following the heartbreaking loss of Mary Teller has been overwhelming but not surprising. Mary was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, aunt, sister, and beloved friend. Her greatest joy in life was caring for her husband, Jack (28), her two precious children, Siena (3) and Grady (9 months), and opening her heart and home to friends and family. To know Mary was to love her.
Many have expressed a desire to provide financial support to Jack, Siena, and Grady. The family is so deeply grateful. Following are recent and expected expenses that your generosity can support:
- $80,000 to assist in childcare and living expenses for the next year while Jack and the children adjust to life without Mary. Specifically, we hope to raise: $50,000 for childcare and school expenses & $30,000 for six months of living expenses for Jack, Siena, and Grady.
- $70,000 to partially cover the cost of Mary’s medical bills, travel, and lost income over the last seven months of treatment. For those who don’t know, Mary battled stage four lymphoma, enduring two rounds of chemotherapy and countless medical treatments.
Jack is most grateful for your expressions of love. The greatest gift you can give Mary, Jack and their families is your continued prayers. Mary treasured her Catholic faith. She had a beautiful admiration for our Lord, which only grew during her battle with cancer. Mary’s constant prayer was, “Lord, make me holy.”
