SYMPATHY TO GRANADOS FAMILY: from Eva Finley 09/03/2019
Mary Granados, city carrier, Odessa Texas was delivering mail on Saturday, when she was shot and killed by a lone gunman who hijacked her postal vehicle and went on a shooting spree.
Since Mary was an employee of the USPS, we would like our UPMA members to reach out and offer prayers and condolences to her family in Odessa. The twin cities of Odessa and Midland are shocked with grief and disbelief.
Guadalupe (Chito) Ramirez, Postmaster of Odessa, shared this information with me. Please send cards and letters of sympathy to Mary's Family. The address:
Family of Mary Granados
