Mary worked for Bibb Manufacturing Company for 36 years, where after retirement she took great pleasure in caring for all of her grandchildren.

Mary was a member of Crosspointe Church on Byrd Road, in Oxford. Mary loved her family unconditionally, was a friend to everyone she met, and always ready to lend a helping hand and brighten the lives of others. The legacy of her hard work, kind spirit, and zest for life will live on through her family and friends.
