This peaceful event was witnessed by the most important people in her life – her cherished family.

Family was the most important thing in Mary’s life. She loved each and every one of them so much.

She was a member of Providence Baptist Church for 41 years and was the oldest living member of the church.

She is survived by her daughters, Dianne Dutton and Jane (Wilson) Treadwell; granddaughters, Leigh (Don) Trisler, Elizabeth Dutton Feralin and Jenny (Glenn) Amerson. Her great-grandchildren are Adam and Alyx Burnham, Hunter (Alyssa) Kirk, Will (Georgia) Smith, Hanson and Hannah Kirk, Andrew Smith and Elijah Smith and his fiancé Shelby McNeil. Her great-great-grandchildren Braxton, Wyatt, Ava and Bobby Burnham; Kylie and Chase Kirk, sister, Kathleen Hall, brother-in-law Bill and Mary Todd Young, and sister-in-law Margaret Young.
