Mary and her sister Mabel grew us on the banks of the New River in Monroe County, WV in a two story log home. Mary never ran out of stories about her childhood, whether it was about her and Mabel’s adventures on or in the river, out in the woods or their mile long walk to the one room school they attended or the many different people who walked by their house looking for work. Mary loved the Lord, she had prayer with many friends, and she felt loved and gave love.
She leaves behind so many friends, her church family at Pearisburg Christ Fellowship. Mary touched many lives. We, Mary’s family want to thank each and every person who came to visit Mary. For every prayer that was prayed, for every gift, whether it was a card, picture, flowers, food or candy. Mary enjoyed them all. God Bless You All. Many thanks to the staff at Heritage Hall – Rich Creek. Mary said it took a special kind of person to work in a place with so many people with special needs. God Bless You All. Many thanks to: Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, Giles Community, Radford and Hospice. The staff always took great care of Miss Mary.
