As a child, Mary was always close with her siblings and shared a special bond with each of them that continued her whole life as she spoke to each of them weekly. She loved going to school and church and mostly enjoyed talking with her classmates and making friends. This love lasted throughout Mary’s life. She was approachable and quick to make a friend anywhere she went. Mary’s joy and humor were apparent to anyone she encountered. She was quick to share a joke or story with anyone that would listen.
Mary moved to Oklahoma with her family in the early 1980s and quickly met Steve through mutual friends, the Mills. They were married in 1982 and moved into the home Steve built for their family in Piedmont. They enjoyed watching their kids, Ashley and Kyle, grow and graduate from the same high school that Steve attended. Steve and Mary celebrated 40 years of marriage in May of this year. To her family, Mary was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was a caregiver to her whole family, making sure that all were comfortable and fed and happy wherever we went. She loved her grandchildren more than anything and went out of her way to spend time with them and spoil them.
Mary enjoyed a long career as an insurance claims agent. She treasured the friendships she made with coworkers and took pride in the quality of her work. She also loved knowing that she was helping her customers through difficult situations and getting them back to their regular lives. Mary also really enjoyed her retirement. She and Steve bought an RV and made many great memories traveling with Kyle, Ashley, the grandkids and her dog Jake. In her last year, Mary taught us all what it looks like to go through life’s trials with courage, dignity and grace. She knew how she wanted to spend her time and made the most of her final days by bringing her family even closer together.
