Remembering Mary

In Triple S Camera’s third year of business (1952), a young women named Mary, graced us with her presence. She handled the bookkeeping, window decorations, and assisted customers.

Her role with Triple S Camera changed in 1973 when she and Mike Rogers, another long time employee, bought the business. They continued to run the business, adapting to the ever changing world of photography. About thirty years later, Mary started to retire little by little and sold the business in 2010, but she never became a stranger to Triple S Camera.

Mary’s many years in the photography business encouraged her to document her life with pictures. And to actually print them and organize them in albums. These albums were pulled out frequently to share with friends and family. Every Christmas, memories from the albums were carefully selected to make calendars for her family.

Mary would often buzz into Triple S Camera with a big, gorgeous smile on her face. We loved to hear about her most recent trip and of course to see her pictures. But now there is a void with the Triple S family. Mary suddenly passed away on April 21st, while enjoying and trimming her rose garden.

She is missed.
