Mary A. Bryden, 57, of Sun City, Arizona passed away on August 29, 2017. She is survived by her father, Thomas Rogers, brothers, Tom Rogers, Vic Rogers and John Rogers, son Chris Gurnsey, grandchildren Sara Gurnsey and Ashlynn Gurnsey-Tufano. Mary was a very loving person who wanted nothing more than to spend every minute of her day with family and friends. There is nothing on this earth she loved more than her grandchildren and would ask to see them every time we spoke. She was a long time chef and enjoyed cooking and most of all cooking for others. She would strive to provide the best meals no matter what she had and always wanted to make sure you never left her house hungry. Mary was a very sincere person and always cared for other people over herself, she would give you everything she had, even if that meant having nothing left for herself. She will be deeply missed by anyone who knew her. Most of all, she will be greatly missed by her son and granddaughters. A Memorial Service will be held from 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M., Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Whitney & Murphy Funeral Home, 4800 E. Indian School Rd., Phoenix.

I love you Mary! You will live on forever in the memories and hearts of everyone that was blessed enough to meet you. Your “precious cargo”, as you always called them, will always be taken care of, I promise you that. Heaven just got the best cook! Rest in peace Mary.

Mary was my wife, my friend and my companion who stood shoulder to shoulder with me in the very best years of my life, She brought me Chris who is to this day the anchor of my life.
Our friends remember her for the love that she gave freely and of her love of critters, compassion for the very young and the elderly.
Although you never sought recognition for your loving acts in this life, I’m sure that they will be known and cherished in heaven.
Sleep well Mirkwood, you have earned it……s

Dear Chris,
My deepest condolences to you. I know how special she was to you. I know what you are going through and I can only imagine how you feel. Always remember the happy times that you share with her and those will always be in your heart ❤️.

I am one of the kids who grew up with Mary from the old neighborhood. I remember as kids it always seemed like everyone congregated at Mary’s house. She always was everyone’s favorite friend. She always seemed to be the leader in all the games we played. She always seemed to have neat ideas for everything. Although we all lost track of each other after high school, I’m sure that if we all got together we would talk about the good old days. Mary, may you rest in peace. My heartfelt sympathies go out to the entire family. You all were able to spend some good times with a very special person.

Aunt Mary, you were a mother to me in times of desperate need and a friend in times when I really needed one. My heart is broken to lose you from this world, but I am certain that you are in a better place. I love you so much and will miss you terribly. Sleep Well Aunt Mary, I Love You Always.
