Wife, mother, grandmother

Servant, minister, life scholar

Learning, serving, faithful

Never away from Jesus, every step she took praised Him

Always helping, listening, caring


Mary’s heart was dedicated to the Lord

Crystal clear in her life journey – she would follow the Lord

A long obedience to the Father as a minister and a minister’s wife

She knew what was required of her

No complaining, she did it and did it every single day


Mary’s commitment included every aspect of her life

She lived what she believed

She cared for others as Jesus cared for her

Wisdom, mercy, grace and a willingness to change

Jesus was her guide, God was her partner


Mary spent her life devoted to talking to the Lord

Prayer was as much a part of her life as breathing

She cultivated this habit of prayer

When life happened Mary was praying

Praying that God’s will be done, that Jesus be glorified


What a life

Her family, her ministry, her work

Given to the Lord, dedicated to His honor

Mary impacted everyone she knew-this was her life

She knew where she was going – proclaiming Christ to her last breath
