Fairview, TX – Mary Lee is now with her heavenly Father, who she has always loved. Mary Lee, 81, passed on September 28, 2021, in McKinney TX.
She will be sorely missed by her family and by all her loved ones. She had a very gracious and giving spirit. Mary Lee loved to sing, primarily hymns and gospel music, and would do so on the phone, at home, in church, and in her role as Director of Activities at a local nursing home. She also loved to write poetry, some of which were published. She would create a poem in just a matter of minutes. Joke telling and playing simple games were two of her greatest hobbies.
In her honor, the following poem using the letters of her first two names was created: Mary Lee was a woman of Many talents; she Aways loved to sing; she Radiated warmth and love; she was always Young at heart; she Loved to write poems; she was Ever kind and giving, and she Enjoyed all of God’s creation. Mary Lee loved to take a word and make a poem out of it.
Mary Lee was reared on a farm. She hoed and picked cotton just like her siblings. At the time she grew up (during and after WW2), times were especially hard for young farm girls. Mary Lee overcame those difficult times and was successful at her chosen occupations.
Mary Lee leaves behind three daughters: Valerie (49), Jennifer (47), and Paula (44) and grandchildren: Roman (15), Ariana (9), Julien (8), and Vivien (5), sisters Shirley (Terry) and Barbara (Billy Wayne), and brothers Morris (Marie), Leon (Diane), Bill (Sue), and David (Megan). Predeceased by her parents: Neal and Maggie Jones; her husband: Walter in 2006; her sister: Sarah; her brothers: James Edward, Eugene Neal, and Marshall Eugene.
Mary Lee will be forever remembered and loved for the kind and generous soul she was.
A celebration of Mary Lee’s life will be held at Replogle – Lawrence Funeral Home in Medina, TN at a later date.
