Mary Ann Stubbs

August 7, 1926December 17, 2014

Mary Ann Stubbs was born August 7, 1926, in Mexia, TX to Thomas Benjamin Stubbs and Essie Frances Holton Stubbs and died December 17, 2014 in Burnet.

In 1943 Mary Ann moved to Austin where her mother owned several units of student housing two blocks from the U.T. campus. While Mary Ann earned her degree from the school of Pharmacy at the University of Texas in 1947, she was drawn into the skill of accounting and her career started with the State Legislature. It was in 1949 that her long standing years of connection began with the Foulds family.

She retired in 1983 from the Texas Youth Council and moved to Burnet in 1989. From people to animals, she easily made friends and loved all. Mary Ann lived by her Christian faith and was a dedicated member of the Burnet Methodist Church. The mountain of love and caring ways shown by her beautiful church family and many other friends is beyond time.

Mary Ann is survived by a brother Thomas B. Stubbs of Colombes, France and like family Bettye Foulds with Kathy, Debby, Bill Jr, and Martha, as well as many cousins.

Left to remember their good life together and the years of happy times is her faithful and loving friend Jo Foulds… the one she called “Jodie”.

Services will be held Friday December 19, 2014 at 2:00 PM at the Burnet Methodist Church with Reverend Stan Troy and Reverend L.C. “Buddy” Johnston officiating, interment to follow at Burnet City Cemetery. Pallbearers are Bill Foulds Jr., Billy S. Foulds, Bryan Foulds, Darrell McGuire, David McGuire, Clay Crowell and honorary pallbearer Melissa Smith.

Arrangements were made by Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home in Burnet TX.

Nan was such a kind, caring and thoughtful person. We always cherished the times she and Jo spent with the Wilson family in Tyler!

My cousins Mary Ann and Thomas (we called them Nan and Buddy) have been bright spots in my life from the beginning, and dear Jo for almost that long. I treasure all my memories of Mary Ann and Jo, and Jo, may you be comforted. May Mary Ann's memory be for a blessing.

Mary Ann was a friend to everyone she met. She never failed to greet with a kiss or hug, remembering, it seemed, every face. She was a faithful member of the Genealogical Society and Ft. Croghan's Heritage Society, in addition to being a supporter of the Burnet Library. She touched many lives with her gentle touch, helpfulness, and Christian faith. I was lucky to have known her.

It was with great sadness I learned of Mary Jo ' s passing this afternoon. A sweet and kind woman who I only knew a short period of time. I will miss her smile and hugs. May God be with all those she left behind.

Mary Jo, Thank you for being so kind and friendly. You will be missed. Sleep in heavenly peace.

One of the first persons to greet me when I moved to Burnet and attended my first meeting of the Burnet County Genealogical Society was Mary Ann. I later served as president for five years and Mary Ann was someone I could always depend on. She was a good friend and will be sorely missed. She would always greet my wife at the Fellowship of Church Women and never failed to ask about me.
