Mary Rue (Grimes) Allbritton, 89, of Sherwood, passed away January 12, 2018. She was born August 24, 1928 to Seth Walter and Clara Jane (Lane) Grimes in Enola, Arkansas. She was known as "Pistol" by her brothers and sisters. In 1955 she married Frank Allbritton and was together until he passed away in 1995. Mary was a licensed Cosmetologist in 1967. She worked for Pfeiffer-Blass, then Dillard's when McCain Mall opened. She was head of several departments and retired from the China Department in 1998. She was an avid seamstress, made all the clothes she wore to work, played the piano, loved the lake, and her family meant the absolute world to her. Loved them 'HOGS', loved gospel music and was just a class act. She collected antiques to furnish her home. She was a member of Faith Baptist Church, NLR, where she often-times played the piano as a young woman.
She is preceded in death by her husband Frank, her parents Walter and Clara, sisters Reba Jobe and Athalene Largey; her brothers Ray Grimes, Arbie Grimes, George Grimes, and Charles Grimes.
She is survived by two sons, Russell Frank (Vicki) and Bobby Ray and daughter Clara Frances, grandson Joshua Matthew Padilla, and two great-children Hope and Bubba, brother, Jack Grimes and many other beloved family and friends.
The family would like to thank Baptist Hospital, UAMS, Amedisys, Absolute Care and each and every one that took care of our mother.
