    Dear Judy: Our thoughts are with you in your time of sorrow. We have many fond memories of the times we spent with you at your Mom and Dad’s place at the pool, when we were younger.

  • Keith Wilson says:

    I have never had a better reason to pick up a set of golf clubs and get back to the game I once loved. Thank You, Nana, for sharing that love with me. You will never be forgotten:)

  • Wilma Flach says:

    Mary Alice was a precious soul to all of her sisters and brothers in Christ. She was special to me and others in the congregation at Central and specifically to all in our Ladies Bible Class. She shared so much with all of us concerning her beloved family (and her passion for golf) over our Thursday gatherings at the local hamburger shop. She will be missed…but only until we meet in heaven!

  • Becky Cole says:

    I will always remember Mary Alice’s smile and quick wit. It was a blessing to know her and study with her in our Thursday Ladies Bible class at the Central Church of Christ. She loved her Lord and her family on earth. We’ll miss her.

    Dear Judy & Patty My condolences to you and your families for the loss of your mother. My memories are very clear as the the very enjoyable times we had at our grandparents home during the family get togethers with both Mary Alice and Dick.

  • Judy Deatherage says:

    Mary Alice’s happy spirit added so much to her home church. She always had a sweet smile that seemed to say “Welcome. I’m glad you’re here.” She was so blessed to have two loving daughters and a large family that loved her dearly. Know she will be missed. Judy D.

  • Millie Tullis says:

    My friendship with Mary Alice began when we firt met at church services in the early 90’s. I was drawn to her because of her lovely spirit…who wouldn’t be! Through the years we have shared happy, loving times together. I will always hold her close in my heart.
