Sometimes little needs to be said about people who bring joy to others. This is not the only reason for a Hometown Hero nomination, she also has a challenging job.

We get dozens and dozens of nominations each week and they are always great reminders of family, friends, and coworkers doing good things for those around them in and around the Rockford community. Someone like Mary Sperry, who serves as a nurse at Winnebago County Jail. Her duties on the clock aren't solely why she was nominated by her friend Tammy.

She works as a nurse at the Winnebago County Jail. She always seems so positive. Works a lot of long hours but still finds the time to bake cookies, cakes for fellow employees or friends.

If you work in an office or shop you know coworkers like Tammy are your favorite. How can you not love someone who brings delicious treats to work for special occasions and "just because?" We're thankful for Mary and those alike so we want to sure she receives something special, just because.

As a Q98.5 Hometown Hero, Mary will receive a $100 Amazon gift card thanks to Gustafson's Furniture & Mattress. Although we're certain she won't spend it on herself, whatever she uses it for will bring joy to someone, and that's what life is all about.
