Very Sorry to hear of. I worked at the A MCorp. with her for several years. She as a very nice person. I am Honored to have known Mary and Doyle. They were very nice people.
ONE OF THE BEST LADIES I EVER WORKED WITH, A GREAT FRIEND AND AN HONEST LOVING PERSON SHE AND DOYLE WILL MEET AGAIN IN HEAVEN. WHAT A COUPLE.
I am in disbelief that this beautiful woman has past on..I had worked at the Scotland Community Center as their cook..I was greeted by Doyle and Mary with open arms..was introduced to those who came to congregate for fellowship..Mary would ask me if I sewed and I said yes I do..she would bring me unfinished sewing projects that she didn't have time for..she told me stories about some of those pieces. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. Doyle always gave the strongest hugs you could imagine. They loved dancing..coming up to the senior center in FFB on Friday nights. They were a lovely couple..here on earth..and now in Heaven..I will miss the both of you..thank you for bringing joy to me and putting a smile on my face.BlessingsAlways, Rose Michelle Woolsey
She was my moms cousin and loved her dearly
Sorry to hear of your loss. I am especially thankful for Mary and Doyle because they helped my mother when she really needed someone. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. Psalms 116:15.

We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family.Although we did not get to spend a great deal of time with Mary and Doyle, I feel like we knew them for the good and special people that they were. My mom, Violet Webb, told me many stories of growing up with Mary.
