OBITUARY

Mary Allison Woodyard

July 8, 1994March 26, 2020

Mary Allison Woodyard, age 25 of Choctaw, Oklahoma, went home to be with her Lord on March 26, 2020 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Services have been entrusted to the care of Bill Eisenhour Northeast Funeral Home. Mary was born on July 8, 1994 in Oklahoma City to George and Sandra (Phillips) Woodyard. She went to high school at Christian Heritage Academy, graduating with the class of 2012. She then attended Rose State College before going to the University of Central Oklahoma where she studied biomedical engineering and graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree. Mary was an encouraging, selfless and loving soul. During her own battle with cancer, she volunteered at Children’s Hospital on the cancer floor. She had a gift for being a well needed distraction for the children who were fighting their own cancer battles. They absolutely adored her gentle, sweet spirit. She made each of them feel special and the kids hated when it was time for her to leave. Growing up, her parents called her “Amazing Mary” because she was such a special little girl and during her 25 years of life, she continued to live up to the title. Among many talents, she was born with the gift of a green thumb, and enjoyed growing her own flowers. She was incredibly bright and loved to read. She was always striving to learn more and could often be found studying and doing research. She especially loved her dog, Lucy. Mary was a devout Christian, and above all else God and her family were the light of her life. She will be remembered as a strong, outgoing and caring soul. She packed more wonderful memories into her short 25 years here on earth than most people could in 100 years. She will truly be missed by all who knew and loved her. Mary was preceded in death by her grandmothers: Ann Woodyard and Jackie Phillips and grandfather, Freddie Phillips. She is survived by her parents: George and Sandra Woodyard; brothers: Wes Woodyard and wife Kait, and Brandon Woodyard; nephew, Wren Woodyard; grandpa, George Woodyard, Sr., as well an numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and other beloved family members and friends.

One of my favorite memories of Mary was seeing her face light up every time she saw Macie and how she just couldn't wait to take her from you so she could hold her and love on her. she was filled with so much love and we all will miss her so much. I can't wait to see her again in heaven and see her face light up when she sees our Macie again!

So many beautiful memories of a beautiful girl. I will share a couple short but very meaningful. 1. When Mary was about 1 year old and my oldest was about 6 months old, my wife her mom and new baby drove to see Mary and her family. It was Halloween and after we all went and got bags of candy, we took it back to their house. Dumped all the candy all over the floor. Mary and our daughter dove in. You would have thought it was the last candy in the world. But to see both of them laugh and play in the candy together and just have fun has always impacted me. And the other I want to share is that several times when Mary was at her mom's house for different get togethers. I would just watch her smile. One particular time I leaned over and asked if she was good and she just smiled and said "I'm good". I beleive that she was. I also know that she was saved and knew where she was going. That's the best memory I have. She is in heaven.

Sweet, sweet Mary, you truly are one of the sweetest, bravest, strongest, most beautiful young ladies I have ever known. She brought such joy to our lives from the moment she was born. She was all of my children's bestest friend at different times, she always took care of them and loved them well! And, they loved her the same! Everywhere I look there is a memory of her, and I cherish each and every one!! Even the ones I questioned at the time! I'm so thankful for those! I loved my talks with her, we agreed on most things, so it was always nice to have someone on my side! Life will never be the same without her, she simply made life better! Mary was a light in our world that can sometimes be so dark. Her laugh and smile could brighten our hardest days, and those will be with me forever. Twenty five years was not nearly enough time with her and her laugh, smile, sense of humor, encouragements.....but I am so thankful to have had her in my life! You, sweet Mary, will be missed so much, but I will see you again! 💕💕 I love you, Mary!💕💕

I have to share how special the bond between my baby Macie and her was. From the minute she found out i was pregnant she was so excited to have a baby to love on, and she did, every chance she could! She was there the day Macie was born and there for all the memories in between! Macie loved her and loved to be around her. I am so thankful for the memories I can share with Macie as she grows, Mary will forever be talked about and shared with my babies! Thank you Mary for loving my girl so much!

I still remember when you and Sandi had to baby sit me for the week and you bought us red bull for the week. Ever since then ive been addicted to Red Bull. you Were so beautiful inside and out. You were so kind to everyone even if you didn’t know them. But if they did you wrong or someone you loved wrong you let them have it. That’s definitely my favorite thing about you. You didn’t let anyone push you around, not even me. You always had the best answer to everything I asked. Even if I didn’t wanna hear the truth. You knew I needed it. And that’s Bc you loved me and you wanted the best for me. You didn’t want me to end up doing something stupid. You’ll always be my homie. Forever and always. I love you so much mary.

What a special, beautiful girl who never failed to amaze me. My first best friend and partner in crime my whole life, I can't count the times we got into trouble together, but oh the memories we made were even more! She has always been more than a cousin to me, but a sister! From the very beginning we were inseparable, where one of us was the other was also. I am so thankful for the times we shared and the laughs we had!
Her strength and joy was encouraging to everyone. She loved to laugh and had a beautiful smile and an even more beautiful soul! Her spirt was never crushed, and she was always there to lift you up even when she was going through so much.
What a blessing it has been to go through life with her in it. I will always love her, and my heart will always have a special place for her.

i remember one time, when she had her old White Mustang, for those of you that remember that car of hers. anyway, her sandi and i all went to Walmart to get wasp spray and when we were pulling out of the parking lot, Mary said “ready set wheeeee!” and drove off. She was such a joy to be around!

I will always remember Mary for how funny she was, and how beautiful her smile was. she could light up a room at any moment, no matter what was going on. She somehow always made people feel better, even when she was the one in pain. if she smiled, you just automatically felt good. She was so strong her entire life, she never gave up on anything, especially if every single odd was against her. She’s always called me her, “mini me” and it meant so much because of how Amazing she was, she must’ve thought i was somewhat amazing too. She was one of the most amazing people i’ve ever known, and she will be missed so dearly. I love you so much, Mary. i will always be your Mini Me.

I didn’t know Mary as well as some, but when I did spend time with her, she treated me like she had known me her whole life. I have never seen anybody fight as hard as she did. She was a fighter. I was blessed to get the honor to know her when I did. I am deeply heart broken from her passing, But I am exceedingly happy that after all the fighting and pain, she is finally with her Father in heaven resting in paradise with her heavenly family. We will miss you so much Mary. See you soon.

Mary was always the coolest. Driving up in her white mustang, music blaring. Lauren would tell me all the crazy stories they had together. I would say the most ridiculous things to Mary and she would just look at me surprised then laugh. She somehow understood my humor. When she wasn't feeling well, I sent her the craziest texts full of sparkles and rainbows. Those texts made both of us laugh. Some of my best memories were made here in Oklahoma and Mary was always somehow a part of them. We all miss you more than you could know.
