She loved, supported, and took great pride in her family.

She was a member of Wrights Creek Baptist Church where she attended until her health declined. She was a pillar of strength in the community, always helping others in their time of need. Mary retired from the Cherokee Indian Hospital. She was known by most as Granny Mary. Many know her as being the #1 Cherokee Braves and Lady Braves fan. She enjoyed spending time on the lake fishing, mushroom hunting, gardening, reading, and crocheting.

Pallbearers will be among her grandsons and nephews. In lieu of flowers, the family ask that donations be made to Betty’s Place or Cherokee Children’s Home. The family wishes to thank everyone in the community for their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

I worked with Mary years ago at the hospital in the inpatient area. She was a straight shooter and didn't pull any punches. Bless her heart. I sure did enjoy being around this strong, independent, Native woman. She was a very special lady and I will miss seeing her at ball games. Bless you all.
