Mary was a member of the Myrtle Freewill Baptist Church and faithfully attended when her health permitted. She was also a former member of the Garfield Freewill Baptist Church for many devoted years.

Mary and Ralph enjoyed spending summer vacations together. Sometimes it was just the two of them, other times it was with their family members.

After her marriage to Leo, she enjoyed being a farm wife, working with Leo to improve their farm at Myrtle and raising beef cattle.

She truly loved her time spent outdoors in her yard, tending to her flowerbeds. She loved all different types of flowers and shrubs and could tell you the name of every one.

Mary always enjoyed time spent with her nieces, especially the slumber parties. This made for long lasting memories for all.

Mary will be remembered as a devoted wife, a loving and caring aunt, and a friend to all. She will truly be missed by all that knew her.

    Saddened to hear of Cousin Mary’s passing. She was my Dad’s 1st cousin. Thoughts and prayers to her family at this difficult time.

    As one of her many nieces in California she will always be kindly remembered . I will always remember our trips to Missouri when I was growing up. The last time I was back there was in 1974 and she was always taking us to the many places around Thayer and Couch. Mary was a great cook, one of her recipes have become my families favorite. I am sorry I didn’t get a chance to see her again, but as I told her once “She was never far away in my thoughts”

    All my love to Vickie and thank you for always being there for her when the rest of us couldn’t be.
