Mary, a Raleigh native, dedicated her life to Jehovah on February 20, 1951 and served him faithfully for over 68 years. She was known for her appreciation of Jehovah’s creative works and loved to work with the earth to harvest delicious fruits and vegetables. She also appreciated working in the greater harvest work of helping people on the road to life. We look forward to seeing her again in the resurrection on the cleansed earth doing those things she enjoyed so much forever!
